"I am not sure how can I insert the delay here as it is so easily done by $mw->repeat."

Here's one way to do it:

GUI Server (pm_tk_repeat_server.pl):

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use Tk; use IO::Socket; my $mw = MainWindow->new; my $control_F = $mw->Frame()->pack(-side => 'bottom'); my $out_F = $mw->Frame()->pack(-side => 'top', -fill => 'both', -expan +d => 1); my $out_T = $out_F->Scrolled('Text', -scrollbars => 'osoe', -wrap => ' +none'); $out_T->pack(-fill => 'both', -expand => 1); my $out_win = $out_T; my $delay = 100; my ($client, $tid); my @button_pack_opts = (-side => 'left', -padx => 10); $control_F->Button(-text => 'Start Server', -command => [\&start_server, \$client] )->pack(@button_pack_opts); $control_F->Button(-text => 'Start Listening', -command => [\&start_listen, \$mw, \$client, \$tid, \$delay, \$out +_win] )->pack(@button_pack_opts); $control_F->Button(-text => 'Stop Listening', -command => [\&stop_listen, \$out_win, \$tid] )->pack(@button_pack_opts); $control_F->Button(-text => 'Quit', -command => sub { exit } )->pack(@button_pack_opts); MainLoop; sub start_server { my ($client_ref) = @_; my $server = IO::Socket::INET::->new( Proto => 'tcp', LocalPort => 55555, Listen => SOMAXCONN, Reuse => 1 ) or die "Server can't start: $!"; $$client_ref = $server->accept(); $$client_ref->autoflush; return; } sub start_listen { my ($mw_ref, $client_ref, $tid_ref, $delay_ref, $out_ref) = @_; $$tid_ref = $$mw_ref->repeat( $$delay_ref => [\&read_client, $mw_ref, $client_ref, $out_ref] + ); return; } sub stop_listen { my ($out_ref, $tid_ref) = @_; my $times_format = "(Usr: %d, Sys: %d, ChUsr: %d, ChSys: %d)\n"; $$out_ref->insert(end => sprintf $times_format => times); $$out_ref->yview('end'); $$tid_ref->cancel; return; } sub read_client { my ($mw_ref, $client_ref, $out_ref) = @_; $$mw_ref->fileevent($$client_ref, 'readable', sub { if (defined(my $read = readline *$$client_ref)) { $$out_ref->insert(end => $read); $$out_ref->yview('end'); } else { $$mw_ref->fileevent($$client_ref, 'readable', ''); } }); return; }

Dummy Client (pm_tk_repeat_client.pl):

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use IO::Socket; my $client = IO::Socket::INET::->new( Proto => 'tcp', PeerAddr => 'localhost', PeerPort => 55555 ) or die "Client can't connect: $!"; my $max_iterations = 3; my $sleep_time = 10; for (1 .. $max_iterations) { print $client qx{ls -al 2>&1}; sleep $sleep_time; }

Notes:

  • Run the GUI Server code and click the Start Server button.
  • Run the Dummy Client code.
  • Go back to the GUI Server and click the Start Listening button: output should appear in the Tk::Text window.
  • You can stop the output with the Stop Listening button. (You can Start/Stop Listening as often as you want.) The repeat() and cancel() methods are in the callbacks for these two buttons.
  • The callback for the repeat event is read_client(). The file event handler is both created and deleted within this subroutine.
  • See perlipc if you have any questions about the Client/Server IO::Socket code: it mostly came from there pretty much unchanged.
