Not sure if this is specific to Win32::MMF::Shareable (v0.07), but when you $mw->waitVariable( \$tied_var ) while using Tk, it doesn't resume when $tied_var is updated in another process. Like so:
use strict; use Tk; use Win32::MMF::Shareable; my $wait; tie( $wait, 'Win32::MMF::Shareable', 'wait' ); $wait = 0; my $pid; unless( $pid = fork ) { $SIG{HUP} = \&stop; while( 1 ) { sleep 1 } } my $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->Button( -text => '$wait', -command => sub { pri +nt "\$wait is $wait\n" } )->pack; $mw->Button( -text => 'waitVariable( \\$wait )', -command => \&start ) +->pack; $mw->Button( -text => 'local $wait++', -command => \&stop ) +->pack; $mw->Button( -text => 'remote $wait++', -command => sub{ kill +( 'HUP', $pid ) } )->pack; MainLoop; kill( 'TERM', $pid ); sub start { print "waiting for \$wait (was $wait)\n"; $mw->waitVariable( \$wait ); print "finished waiting for \$wait (is now $wait)\n"; } sub stop { print "\$wait++ by pid $$\n"; $wait++; } __END__ # [\d] is button pressed $wait is 0 # [1] start on 0 waiting for $wait (was 0) # [2] start waiting $wait++ by pid 2372 # [3] increment locally finished waiting for $wait (is now 1) # ... all okay waiting for $wait (was 1) # [2] wait again $wait++ by pid -2184 # [4] increment remotely # ... nothing happens $wait is 2 # [1] but it has been increment +ed $wait++ by pid 2372 # [3] increment locally again finished waiting for $wait (is now 3) # ... and it works

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.
