Cheers for the prompt response.

The problems I percieve with this are that the return data already stretches over several lines and contains a return character at the end of each line..

If you mean it needs a return character after the last line..
I am loathe to add an extra return character to provide Perl with a quick fix, when it may inpinge on other clients in other languages.

    As a test, and to see if the return is the problem, could I suggest using sysread to read back 1 character at a time to see if you get stuff returned immediately or whether it still sits waiting.

    But today you took me walking, Through a land that we have lost,
    While our children sit at websites, With no access to the cost

      I think I've found the answer to my problems and it stems from the fact that I'm writing a bi-directional client.. So I'm trying the example in the Cookbook for this.
