in thread open, sleep, & print together cause an error

tye, you are a smart, smart person. That worked. Here's what I ended up with:

use strict; use warnings; require IO::Handle; # <--- new open LOG,">foo.log" or die "can't open foo.log: $!"; <b>LOG->autoflush(1);</b> # <--- new while(1) { print LOG (localtime).": something\n"; sleep(5); }

Thanks a lot for your help, tye. -zeno
