Another way to implement a timeout on a user input read (that is what you're doing, right?) is to use Term::ReadKey and its ReadLine method (or ReadKey, but here you want to read a line, so...).

use Term::ReadKey; my $message = ReadLine(10); ## timeout of 10 seconds
This manages all of the timeout issues for you. Although it may not do so in a way that suits you, who knows. And you may already have tried it, even. Anyway.

[Discipulus]: dazz i'm not an experts but i think it would be possible
[Corion]: dazz: I think Image::Magick can "read" from an in-memory filehandle
[Corion]: choroba: No, some general admin discussion of how to handle (company) user accounts
[Discipulus]: might be it is necessary to pass the pic data like MIME::Base64:: encode( data..
[Discipulus]: if you have a jpeg data: or as wise Corion said IM ca n read directly your handle
