in thread die not exiting Application

I have noticed that the above problem is happening when we have TK error along with the open fail error in that case. TK:Error API get called instead of die_handler. Tk error are not considered fatal, so the application don't exit. But, this is not the right behavior of the application. Regards, Mihir

    In case die is overridden, you can call CORE::die instead.

    Update: maybe I should mention that this wouldn't help much, though, if the die should somehow happen to be trapped by an eval { ... } block  (which I don't know)...  In this case, you could try something along the lines of

    open my $fh, "<", $file or warn "Couldn't open '$file': $!" and ex +it;

    to force the program to terminate.

    Consider this

    my $file = "does-not-exist"; while (<STDIN>) { eval { open my $fh, "<", $file or warn "Couldn't open '$file': $!" and exit; }; print STDERR "ERROR: $@" if $@; }

    (which would actually terminate the program) vs.

    while (<STDIN>) { eval { open my $fh, "<", $file or CORE::die "Couldn't open '$file': $!"; }; print STDERR "ERROR: $@" if $@; }

    which would continue printing (despite the CORE::die)

    ERROR: Couldn't open 'does-not-exist': No such file or directory at ./ +680735.pl line 10, <STDIN> line 1. ERROR: Couldn't open 'does-not-exist': No such file or directory at ./ +680735.pl line 10, <STDIN> line 2. ...

    ...if you keep hitting the ENTER key.

    (If necessary, you could of course also use CORE::warn or CORE::exit in combination with the above...)
