in thread Program unexpectedly terminates

There's another case not covered: exec. Something like exec("/bin/true") will effectively exit a script without triggering any END blocks, etc.

Illustration:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use 5.010; use strict; use warnings; BEGIN { *CORE::GLOBAL::exit = sub { die("exit called") } } END { say "END block"; } do { exec "/bin/true" }; # Assuming a Unix-like system here say "got here";
perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
