in thread Watching LXTerminal for outputs

Thank you but I have read most of the documentation on this already. My script is within an infinite while loop and I cannot have mpg321 stalling the script. So I have a "system("mpg321 song.mp3 &"); line that lets it play in the background without stopping the script. I know that backticks will return a value but in my case I have to wait for the song to be finished playing so I am unsure how to pull these values from the terminal.

    What? Why not use the modules? Or view their source to see what they do?

    My script is within an infinite while loop and I cannot have mpg321 stalling the script.

    POE is all about infinite loops, use POE::Component::Player::Mpg123, it won't stall

    So I have a "system("mpg321 song.mp3 &")

    That probably won't work, you should use IPC::Open3,like Audio::Play::MPG123 does ( [jargon://UTSL), see also perlipc
