in thread STDIN refuses input

You could test STDIN on your local computer using CGI::Capture. Try this:

#!perl -lw use strict; use CGI (); use CGI::Capture (); print "What is your name?"; sleep 5; SCOPE: { my $input = <STDIN>; chomp $input; my $input_ref = \$input; if ( CGI::Capture->_stdin($input_ref) ) { print "Hello, $input" or die $!; } }

    I'm not sure what you think that does, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't do what the OP wants, and I absolutely know that it's not testing STDIN in any way I think the OP is interested in. Aside from all that, I'm not the person interested in doing the testing.

    True laziness is hard work
