I'm have a very pecular problem when using
... I'm running Eclipse 3.2 & E.P.I.C. 0.5.12, on XP here's the code .... #! /usr/bin/perl print "Enter the string and the number (separate lines):\n"; $strings = ; chomp($repeat = ); print "Here's your output:\n"; print $strings x $repeat; when I run this code through the console in Eclipse the prgram blocks for the first without printing the first line of text. I get the following in the console..... Robert 4 Enter the string and the number (separate lines): Here's your output: Robert Robert Robert Robert When I run this on through cmd.exe it runs normally, i.e. it prints a prompt to the user first, then blocks. Also runs fine on a Solaris terminal. Please let me know what I can do... thanks, blkdog -

Just a thought, but have you tried turning on autoflush at the beginning of your script? $| = 1;

That worked, Thank-you, ... is this always necessary?

This is a FAQ. Read man perlvar for an explanation on why and when $| = 1 is necessary. Because so many people run into it, I am going to fix it in some near future. That is, I am going to make Perl invoked by EPIC behave as if it was writing to a real terminal if the Console option is enabled in the launch configuration.
