in reply to The implementation of SIGHUP in Win32 Perl

(Windows 7 terminates such processes after approximately 10 seconds). My understanding is that the OS terminates these processes upon the return from the handler,

Can you offer some evidence for either of these assertions?

    This is becoming very interesting. This MSDN topic describes what I believe is the current behavior of the console control handlers. In this article, regarding the event handler returning "True" as it does in win32.c it says, "no other handler functions are called and the system terminates the process." I could find no definitive documentation of the "10 second" process timeout I described. However, this discussion on StackOverflow leads me to believe it is real.

    This behavior has changed over the years. This article provides a good description of how things worked at one point. Notice that there is no mention of threads at all. It seems that a change to the behavior of control handlers occurred beginning with Windows Vista (with Windows 7 apparently adding the previously mentioned 10 second timeout).

    BrowserUk, yes, there are some conversations over on StackOverflow and some MSDN notes, but I'll have to look up the links and post them later, sorry.

Discipulus manual work: i just tell the same to my boss: every time the quick solution is to assign some manual data entry task to my group.. because we have not direct access to many databases here..
[LanX]: point is: in high speed trade each bank has to remember what he has to get from the others... so dresdner got billed for losses but couldn't claim gains
Discipulus is this the IT?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
