POE + perl-tk is a really nice environment for
writing event driven programs. It works fine on
linux [though the debugging info is not always
all you would wish for].
I want to write a portable program, and I'm trying
to get it to work under cygwin. It goes into an
infinite loop in IO.pm, specifically:
What happens there is that a sub FILENO:
my $obj = shift;
my $h = $obj->handle;
the final call to fileno actually goes straight
back into FILENO. [I tried putting CORE:: in front
but that made no difference]. So it looks like
$obj->handle returns $obj instead of something
more basic. I've tried both win32 and x11 versions
of Tk800.023-1 which seems to be the last cygwin
Presumably it is a cygwin problem, but I'm happy
to entertain perl-Tk or POE workarounds. Or I'll
have to try to fix it [otherwise the Java proponents
will say "I told you so"].
The file handle is almost certainly stdout or stderr
of a child program (run using POE::Wheel::Run).
So I guess my questions are:
1. Will I do better with other versions of cygwin,
perl, perl-Tk, POE?
2. Any suggestions for fixes?
3. Any suggestions for workarounds?
4. Any suggestions for where to look to try to fix it?
