( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi,

I've used IO::Select package and can_read to do polling in my socket. Here is my question,

while(1) { my ( @read_sockets ) = $SELECT->can_read(5); if ( @read_sockets ) { foreach my $fh ( @read_sockets ) { my $data = <$fh>; print "Got data from server, $data"; $data =~ s/\n$//; } } }

When server sends me multiple line messages. can_read returns the socket handle and I read the first line of it(as per the above code). I thought if I do can_read again, I'll get the socket handle returned as some data is not yet read. But, can_read is blocking and not returning the socket handle.

So, what is the better way to use can_read for multi line messages??
