    as you are using qx() (which gets the full output anyway) maybe you can simply redirect the output of your external command to a file (using the system shell and process that later

    my $cmd = "$ext_cmd > $my_output"; # using unixlike shell system($cmd) == 0 or die; #

    (ignore if your OS is not unixlike) what does happen if you manually send SIGALRM to that external process? (wrap it in a shell if the execution time is too short).

[Corion]: Is anybody aware of what makes Android Oreo better than Android Nougat? I'm not sure if the architectural changes (etc) are there already that make upgrading an Oreo-kernel phone to a newer Android userland (Lineage OS) version feasible
[Corion]: Yeah, CryTek got blindsided (or whatever) by Unity and Unreal Engine being zero cost, and the CryTek documentation being bad/nonexistent I think
[Corion]: "zero monetary cost", because of course, it's gratis only if your time has no value :)
[marto]: I used to keep up to date with my android ROMs, updating to the nightly every other day
[marto]: in my experience the jump in major releases has been painless, and performed better
[marto]: Corion if your device has an official Oreo ROM I'd do a nandroid backup and give it a shot
