alarm functionby mantra2006 (Hermit)
|on Sep 25, 2006 at 17:15 UTC||Need Help??|
mantra2006 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am working on a script which was written way back in 1997.
The script looks for a file and signals alarm that file has arrived
in a specific time or file hasn't arrived in that time...
on unix machines the alarm function is working where
as in Win32 systems the alarm function is working
ActiveState listed in its unimpleneted list of activities...
My question is what is the best function to replace with alarm
in Win32 machines...or ideas to implement the same functionality..
Thanks & Regards
