in reply to Re^5: Program unexpectedly terminates
in thread Program unexpectedly terminates

There's another case not covered: exec. Something like exec("/bin/true") will effectively exit a script without triggering any END blocks, etc.

Illustration:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use 5.010; use strict; use warnings; BEGIN { *CORE::GLOBAL::exit = sub { die("exit called") } } END { say "END block"; } do { exec "/bin/true" }; # Assuming a Unix-like system here say "got here";
perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

[marto]: yep :)
[Discipulus]: being her marto, can you explain what "Par for the course I'm afraid." means?
Discipulus here..
[marto]: "what is normal or expected in any given circumstances."
[marto]: better: "If a type of behaviour, event, or situation is par for the course, it is not good but it is normal or as you would expect"
[Discipulus]: thanks i was unable to decide where to split the sentece
[marto]: FWIW search.cpan rarely has issues, see http://noc.perl. org for a route to report problems
[oakbox]: thanks, marto.
[marto]: there was a period where search.cpan had some frequent outages for (IIRC) a couple of weeks. I've not had any problems since, until today.
[marto]: this was about 16 months ago maybe. the noc team are, in my experience, very responsive to reports of issues, so please raise the issue after checking known problems/outages
