( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm glad to see continued discussion. I managed to create what I believe to be the simplest test case for this behavior:

use strict; use warnings; use threads; use Thread::Semaphore; my $gag = new Thread::Semaphore(0); async { $gag->down; while (<>) { print; } }->detach; #close STDIN; # Comment this line for race-condition behavior $gag->up; my $value = async { return 1; }->join;

The proper behavior for this code should be to immediately return control to the OS. In its race-condition configuration under Win32, it will usually wait for one input and parrot it back and sometimes two inputs.

Based on your earlier post, I assume your 5.10 can function w/o the use of semaphores. I'll play with it a bit more to see if the addition of instrumentation to an independent log file affects the buffering behavior, but it seems like waiting for input on a shared file handle is blocking thread creation, i.e. what you said.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
