Re^11: The implementation of SIGHUP in Win32 Perl (non-synchronous IO )by BrowserUk (Pope)

But that is in C, the Anon I assume, and I was referring to XS
Sorry, but I fail to see the distinction between "C" and "XS". They are one and the same.
Would I even attempt it via Win32::API, and 'pure perl' (that's ironic) -- given the history of failures with Win32::API and callbacks, even before you introduce the idea of those callbacks be invoked by the system at some random point in the future possibly on a completely different thread -- no.
Before you try and shoot me down in flames; read the entirety (all 26 levels) of Perl crash during perl_clone so that you understand that I understand the requirements and problems of asynchronous, cross-thread callbacks very, very well.
