in reply to example in book of Programming Perl does not work.

Greetings yangy,

You have an en dash in your open statement.

return if my $pid = open(STDOUT, "|");
Changing it to a regular hyphen minus makes it work for me.
return if my $pid = open(STDOUT, "|-");

[jdporter]: I for one think it's kind of ridiculous that people can't ask - here - other people for help just because it involves monetary compensation.
[jdporter]: I think the test for whether to push it to jobs.perl.com should be strict: (a) you're looking for employment, or (b) you're looking to hire an employee or contractor.
