If you want, you can read alternately in the parent and the child.

(Using sysread because it is unbuffered.)

#!/usr/bin/perl # use strict; use warnings; $| = 1; my $me = fork() ? 'parent' : ' child'; while( sysread DATA, $_, 1 ) { print $me eq 'parent' ? uc : lc; select undef, undef, undef, 0.1; } 1 while wait > 0; __DATA__ one two three four five six seven eigth nine ten

Outputs (on my machine) :

OnE TwO ThReE FoUr fIvE SiX SeVeN EiGtH NiNe tEn

Posted because I think it's funny :)

EDIT: fixed incomplete output paste.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
