Re: unexpected behavior with GIOChannels?

If I connect that to something like netcat (nc -l $host -p $port),

i get an endless loop of:

$VAR1 = \[

Which seems odd since if there's no socket, how can there be data
waiting to be read?

Simply check eof($sock) in your input handler (before reading from 
$sock) to check whether the pipe is broken or it is safe to read a line.

Probably take a look at Gtk2::Helper. It implements convenience 
functions regarding IO monitoring and has example code in the manpage.
