I've added another patch for the popen3 library which sets $? and adds
Process::Status a return when popen3/4 is called with a block thus
making it closer to the Open4. This is a merge of a couple of patches
previously submitted by Samuel Tesla.
Note that this implementation is not thread-safe (as is demonstrated
by sample code I've provided.) I'd be very interested in seeing a
tweak that would make this thread-safe if anyone has ideas about how
to do that.
I'd also be grateful for a release which includes this patch (or
something better) and that would be compatible with the latest
Thanks to all for contributing and maintaining this valuable library.
