in thread Does IO::Select work? Anywhere?

Just change the time-out, probably from 0 to "infinity" (which is likely represented by -1).

    Tye, I didn't think you cared about anything I wrote!. :-) I tried -1 for infinity, and still 100% cpu. But I had the audacity to undefine infinity and it does the right thing. CPU usage is minimal.
    #Change: #my ($new_readable) = IO::Select->select($readable_handles, undef, und +ef, 0 ); # to my ($new_readable) = IO::Select->select($readable_handles, undef, unde +f, undef );
    and the server in Re: Does IO::Select work? Solution is the Holy Grail after all. No sysctl.ph needed. :-) Minimum cpu usage.

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