If there is nothing to read,it means the sysread has finished all the reading?

Or an error. You got error EAGAIN. That error signifies that sysread should block, but the file handle is non-blocking.

EAGAIN or EWOULDBLOCK: The file descriptor fd refers to a socket and has been marked nonblocking (O_NON-BLOCK), and the write would block. POSIX.1-2001 allows either error to be returned for this case, and does not require these constants to have the same value, so a portable application should check for both possibilities.

What you want:

my $buf; while (1) { my $rv = sysread($out, $buf, 64*1024, length($buf)); if (!defined($rv) && !$!{EAGAIN} && !$!{EWOULDBLOCK}) { die $!; } if (defined($rv) && !$rv) { last; } ... whatever it is you wanted to do instead of blocking ... } print $buf;

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
