in reply to Problem with IO::Select

The 0 in can_read(0) means wait 0 seconds. That's a very short time, which is why can_read always returns instantly. Use can_read().

Update: Nevermind. Contrary to the documentation, a timeout of 0 is the same as no argument.

    This yields the same result. Sorry I made a mistake, I inserted the 0 just for testing, because I wondered if it has any special meaning. So please excuse me.
