How would I go about adding in reading STDIN to allow a user to type quit to end this program?

See Re: Ask for STDIN but don't pause for it and the last example. This is untested in your code, but something like this will work. Just add \*STDIN to your Select object and test for it.

# Add listen sockets to select my $sockets = new IO::Select(); $sockets->add(\*STDIN ); $sockets->add($stream1_lsn); $sockets->add($client1_lsn); $sockets->add($client2_lsn); ..... #Go into infinite loop, handling connections - how do I end this? while(my @ready = $sockets->can_read) { #got data foreach my $socket (@ready) { # find which socket sent data if ($socket == \*STDIN) { #read stdin and detect a q; exit; }

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
