in thread print on reboot or process shutdown

If you only have one normal exit point to your script, have it set a flag. Check this flag in your END block, and only write to the file when it is not set.

If you have more than one normal exit point to your script, well, refactor a bit. :-)

PS: note that the way you're opening your file, its contents will be overwritten every time, rather than appended to. Use ">>" if you prefer the other way.

[stevieb]: ahhh yes, it *is* a ref. I had forgotten that. I too have learned something. I quit too!!
[marioroy]: Is List::Util::XS a core Perl module?
[stevieb]: corelist List::Util::XS says "List::Util::XS was first released with perl v5.10.1"
[stevieb]: so yes, since v5.10.1 :)
[MidLifeXis]: According to [metaperl:// corelist], Perl 5.10.1
Lady_Aleena blurbles. One of her favorite modiles is now in "maintenance mode" in favor of a new fangled module.
[MidLifeXis]: D'oh. Slow out of the gate.
[marioroy]: Thanks stevieb, MidLifeXis.
