Hmm...your "ignoring SIGINT" approach works for me on Windows:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my @lines; { $SIG{INT} = 'IGNORE'; @lines = <STDIN>; } print "You entered: " . join("", @lines)
perl 5.10.0 MSWin32-x86-multi-thread (strawberry perl).

    Right... but now ctrl-C is ignored for the entire life of the script. And, if the signal handler is reset back to default later in the script, it doesn't keep the script from dying as a result of the ctrl-C.
