Hello all,

Sorry for not mailing to kick the crap out of Perl5/6/MVC/Catalyst/ 
Maypole/Jifty/Mornington Crescent/other mongers..., but I have a  
small technical question to ask and a room full of perl sceptics  
(a.k.a C# developers) waiting for a script to cure their build process!

The script has a system call (to the svn command-line client), and it  
could possibly return a lot of lines back so I don't want to store it  
in an array, but process it as it's coming through. Is there a way to  
force qx or `` into list context, or something equally helpful?


while( list qx($command) ) {
	do stuff...

Any help is much appreciated!
