in reply to Exiting batch-started Perl script on WinXP shutdown

Shouldn't the script be receiving a signal when windows shuts down?

Using %SIG to set an appropriate action (cleanup; exit 0) might be the simplest way to go about this.

    It looks like p5git://win32/win32.c. turns CTRL_SHUTDOWN_EVENT into a SIGTERM, so $SIG{TERM} should work for this case.
