Have you tried setting $- (number of lines left on the current page) to a suitably large number after each write instead?

Update Since there seems to be some question as to whether my suggestion would work, I did the following test:

use strict; use warnings; $= = 5; for(1..15) { write; #$- = 999; } format STDOUT = @### @###### @### $_, $_**2, $- . format STDOUT_TOP = ---TOP--- . __END__
If I run the above, I get the following at the console:
---TOP--- 1 1 0 2 4 3 3 9 2 4 16 1 ♀---TOP--- 5 25 0 6 36 3 7 49 2 8 64 1 ♀---TOP--- 9 81 0 10 100 3 11 121 2 12 144 1 ♀---TOP--- 13 169 0 14 196 3 15 225 2
and if I uncomment the line setting $- to 999, I get:
---TOP--- 1 1 0 2 4 999 3 9 999 4 16 999 5 25 999 6 36 999 7 49 999 8 64 999 9 81 999 10 100 999 11 121 999 12 144 999 13 169 999 14 196 999 15 225 999
So I believe resetting $- should work. It is also noted in perlfunc under write that setting $- to zero will force a page break, which follows the same pattern.
