( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

That's completely wrong.

1. Closing one end of a pipe doesn't cause close on the other end to return an error.

$ perl -E' pipe($r, $w) or die $!; close($w) or die $!; close($r) or die $!; say "ok"; ' ok

2. Closing a pipe created by open(my $fh, '|-', ...) reads the process (calls wait). It's very appropriate to do this, whether the pipe is closed or not. Closing such a handle returns the same thing as system.

$ perl -E' open(my $fh, "|-", "perl", "-e", "exit 123") or die $!; close($fh); die("$!\n") if $? == -1; die("Signal ".( $? & 0x7F )."\n") if $? & 0x7F; die("Error ".( $? >> 8 )."\n") if $? >> 8; say "ok"; ' Error 123

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

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.
