that's just what the doco says: "alarm Emulated using timers ...".

In the sense that the OS has neither a native alarm API nor *nix-style signals, it is emulated.

But then again, under modern versions of *nix including linux, the original form of alarm is also "emulated with timers", so not so different.

perlport says it's "unsupported"; perlfork says it's "not yet implemented".

A lot of those more obscure docs have never been updated to reflect the current state of play unfortunately.
