in thread How to sleep(), or use a while() in the background?

what did you try, show the iterations ?

Try something like

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; ## use File::Spec; our $thisf = File::Spec->rel2abs( __FILE__ ); use Path::Tiny qw/ path /; our $thisfile = path( __FILE__ )->realpath; Main( @ARGV ); exit( 0 ); sub Main { my( $command, @args ) = @_; my %commands = ( deleteafter => \&DeleteAfter, indexpage => \&IndexPage, servefile => \&ServeFile, ); my $action = $commands{lc $command} || \&IndexPage; $action->( @args ); } sub IndexPage { require CGI; my( $q ) = CGI->new; if( my $temporaryfile = AllowedTemporaryFile( $q ) ){ BackgroundDeleteAfter( $temporaryfile, $seconds ); return ServeFile( $q, $temporaryfile ); } return ListFiles( $q ); } sub DeleteAfter { my $time = shift; close STDIN; close STDOUT; ## close STDERR; open STDERR ...; sleep $time; unlink($_) for @_; } sub BackgroundDeleteAfter { require Proc::Background; Proc::Background->new( $^X, $thisfile, deleteafter => @_ ); } sub AllowedTemporaryFile { ... } sub ListFiles { ... } sub ServeFile { my( $q, $file ) = @_; ## see [id://1151407] }
