in thread select($rin,undef,undef,undef) only blocking once

the code i posted is just an example to demonstrate my problem with fifos. i am using select() because sometimes i want to return from waiting for input.

select($rin,undef,undef,$timeout)
i am not using $buf = <FH> because i thought your not supposed to use it when you use select()

    You shouldn't use select with buffered reads, no - in that case, I'd stick with your solution, especially if you want to use explicit read timeouts.

    My code was an example showing how you could avoid the use of select, if your circumstances permitted it - which it seems they don't :)

      Hmm still would be cool if i dont have to reopen the FIFO everytime the loop gets executed. If anyone has a hint how to do that im glad to listen and try ;)
