So, when does the loop end?

while( <STDIN> ) { ... }

Maybe you want to print out some diagnostics at the end of Temp.pl and in your main script, to learn when a program starts or finishes, and when a program waits for input.

    The Temp.pl script gives me the last print statement conatined in it . So I know that the Temp.pl ends, But How do i tell this while loop to end? <\p>

      Why did you write that loop in the first place?

      On Windows, you end input to STDIN by entering CTRL+Z on an empty line and pressing enter.

        This is used such that when user presses ENTER the script stops and resume only when ENTER is pressed again

      You may be correct, but the statement that you see the last print does NOT offer any assurances that Temp.pl actually ends: all you know for sure based on what you've told us is that Temp.pl runs thru the last print statement.

      Is "the last print statement contained in it" the very last code in the script?

      As to your question about how to end the while loop: you haven't shown us the code. Guessing on a fix for unknown code is not worth our time or yours.


      If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!
