in thread An introduction to POE

Some versions of Linux don't seem to get along with non-blocking ReadKey. I received a test case about it in e-mail on 23 August:

#!/usr/bin/perl use Term::ReadKey; ReadMode 5; # Turn off controls keys while (1) { while (not defined ($key = ReadKey(-1))) { print "Foo\n"; sleep (1); } print "Get key $key\n"; ($key eq 'q') and last; } ReadMode 0; # Reset tty mode before exiting

If the test case fails for you, please e-mail a note to bug-POE@rt.cpan.org so (a) I'll see it, and (b) I won't forget it. :) Since it's a platform-dependent problem, it would help a lot if output from uname -a and perl -V were included. Thanks.

    It's not very happy on a redhat 9 box:

    perl readkeyTest.pl Foo Foo Foo Foo Foo Foo Foo Foo Foo Foo Terminated ~/xml mike@tux6202 $ qqqqqqq ~/xml $ perl -v This is perl, v5.8.0 built for i386-linux-thread-multi (with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail) Copyright 1987-2002, Larry Wall ... ~/xml $ uname -a Linux tuxXXXX 2.4.20-18.9smp #1 SMP Thu May 29 06:55:05 EDT 2003 i686 +i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    It DOES, however, work fine on a Redhat 7.x box with perl 5.6.1, with uname info:
    Linux tuxYYY 2.4.18-26.7.xsmp #1 SMP Mon Feb 24 09:37:16 EST 2003 i68 +6 unknown
