in reply to Interrupt Handling

You havn't shown code, but it is likely you need a localized SIG handler in your children.

#!/usr/bin/perl $SIG{INT} = sub { print "Caught zap in $$\n"; exit }; if ( my $pid = fork() ) { print "Parent Start\n"; sleep 5; local $SIG{INT} = sub { print "Parent $$ ignoring zap\n" }; kill 2 => $pid, $$; sleep 10; print "Parent exit!\n"; } else { print "Child start\n"; sleep 10; print "Child exit!\n"; }
