in thread IO::Select & ssh problem


Thanks for pointing this out. I was casting around for anything that might help me, and it didn't occur to me what was actually happening.

Although I was able to make the above script work, when I replaced the cat /etc/passwd line with a tail -f growingfile line, another problem occurred. The initial output from the tail comes out, but then nothing after that, even as I watch the file grow.

I'm disappointed that I can't get this to work correctly, and can't figure out what is actually happening. If I can't make any progress today, I'll implement another method. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
