( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

This seems to have worked the best of all, after I turned off buffering for STDOUT/STDERR, with code such as this:

my ($ofh) = select(STDOUT); $| = 1; select($ofh); $ofh = select(STDERR); $| = 1; select($ofh); my ($out, $err); run ( [ '/usr/sbin/pkgrm', 'VRTSvxvm' ], '>', sub { $out .= $_[0]; print $_[0] }, '2>', sub { $err .= $_[0]; print $_[0] }, );

Now, if the program I was running demands that it connects to a pty before it will unbuffer STDOUT/STDERR properly, what could I do? I've tried the following, but it doesn't send any output to the screen:

use IPC::Run qw(run); my ($out, $err); run ( [ '/usr/sbin/pkgrm', 'VRTSvxvm' ], '>', sub { $out .= $_[0]; print $_[0] }, '>', '>pty>', '2>', sub { $err .= $_[0]; print $_[0] }, '2>', '>pty>' );

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
