Sure, but why not use pipes or sockets? The select statement works fine in Windows, so blocking won't be an issue.

    No good reason. I could always say its so you could maintain a logfile of past chat sessions, but the truth is I'm a lot more comfortable working with files than sockets and pipes. Laziness. Go figure.

    I'm not 100% sure about Perl 5.8, but in 5.6.1 select() only worked on socket()s, not on pipe()s.
