in thread tracing system calls a perl script is making

Anything between those is your program

...which while block buffered, on my box is optimized into a single write() system call ;-)

strace perl -le 'INIT{ print "About to start running code" } END{print "code ending"} print "hello"' 2>&1 | less execve("/usr/bin/perl", ["perl", "-le", "INIT{ print \"About to start +runn"...], [/* 51 vars */]) = 0 brk(0) = 0x1bc9000 mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, +0) = 0x7fc0fdf2f000 ... rt_sigaction(SIGIO, NULL, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0 rt_sigaction(SIGSYS, NULL, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0 write(1, "About to start running code\nhell"..., 46About to start runn +ing code hello code ending ) = 46 exit_group(0) = ? +++ exited with 0 +++

I wished only half of the programs in my linux distro were half as good as the perl optimizer. Not to mention the stuff I am perlpetrating :)

    He can use warn or print STDERR to prevent that.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      Of course. Setting $| to true also helps. TIMTOWTDI :-)

        I'm generally suspicious of $| ability to ensure that stdout and stderr coordinate when outputting to a file. Hence advocating outputting to the same handle.

        I'd swear I've had problems in the past; but it is possible that it was due to threading rather than IO per se.
