in reply to run command every x seconds

If you are using *nix, then you can white your watching-logic as usual perl program, and then launch it via :

watch my-script.pl my-arg1 my-arg2

By default, watch re-launches the program every 2 seconds, and clears the screen.

[1nickt]: marioroy Yes, I am using it with MCE, as is Discipulus I believe. I was trying to work out how to make a cpanfile that would be smart enough to know which deps to require.
[1nickt]: See this code. (I expected to simply eval loading threads as a check, but weirdness happened with Perlbrew so it's a grep of -V ...)
[choroba]: Config might be better than grepping -V
[Corion]: Also see Config::V, which is less of that hackery, or that hackery hidden in a module ;)
[1nickt]: The problem was with Perlbrew
[Corion]: Whoops - Config::Perl::V
