[kde-linux] Running PERL program in Konsole

It is normal that <> waits for input from STDIN, in this case the 
Konsole, since you did not specify anything else. In a scalar context it 
waits for and end of line (enter). In a list context it waits for an end 
of file (ctl-d). I do not get an uninitialized variable error using 
ctl-d with this line of code. Perhaps you need to post more of your code.
