I hope you and others will consider what I write based upon its merit and utility rather than dismiss it due to my lack of standing within the Perl community.

Hm. I spent 1 day waiting for you to reply to my first questions; and 2 days on and off experimenting with code and reading documentation before replying with my best explanation of my findings.

If I ignore you in future; it won't be because of your lack of standing in the Perl community. (For all I know you could be Larry himself).

But the attitude....

I noticed what I believe to be serious problems with the SIGHUP implementation in Win32 Perl.

My finding are that there is no implementation of SIGHUP on windows. What is there doesn't appear to do anything useful; and it is hard to see what use it would be put to if it did do something useful.

Injecting a 9.5 second sleep into a signal handling routine is about as absurd an approach to 'fixing' it as I could imagine.

But hey. What do I know. Good luck with that.
