and some really ugly code for BrowserUKs select suggestion...

# $data is my filehandle to read from my ($rin,$rout,$win,$wout,$ein,$eout); # for select $rin=$rout=$win=$wout=$ein=$eout= ''; vec($rin, fileno($data), 1) = 1; $ein = $rin; my $last = time; my $heartbeat_interval = 60; my $timeout = 1; # for select while (! $done) { $rout=$wout=$eout= ''; my ($nfound, $timeleft) = select($rout=$rin, $wout=$win, $eout +=$ein, $timeout); if ($nfound and $rout & $rin) { # read from <$data> carefully not to block # count statistics } my $now = time; if (($now - $last) >= $heartbeat_interval) { $last = $now; # do something every heartbeat_interval seconds } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
