Is it possible in Perl to test for keyboard input while
processing (reading from) a file? I'd like to get a status
report by hitting a key during lengthy processing. I'm using
perl 5.0001 for WindowsNT and I believe 'fork' is not
implemented. Even if I could use fork, how can I get a
status report and hence some kind of value from a block of processing to follow, i.e. a variable not yet initialized?
