( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
i guess that under windows fork is implemented using threads so the child does not have his own STDOUT.
My guess is that that is indeed what is happening.
Why are you dont you open a new filhandle in each child process
Because he wants to use it together with system(), and that won't work as intended, with any other filehandle.

Update: Gee, Koosemose appears to be right, this does seem to work right (at least on Win98):

open CHILDOUT, ">test.txt"; select CHILDOUT; system('perl -le "print q(Hello!)"');

I think that would indeed solve it.

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.
