in reply to Force 2 'ctrl-c's to kill program


Alternate approach; closer to OP's original (and a surprise to me that it appears to work!)

#!/usr/bin/perl use 5.016; use warnings; use strict; my $prev_ctrlc = 0; if( ($prev_ctrlc == 0) || ($prev_ctrlc == 1) ) { $SIG{'INT'} = \&control_c_observed; sleep 1; for (1..1e3) { say "\t nothing yet"; sleep 2; } } sub control_c_observed { if ($prev_ctrlc == 0) { print "Second ctrl-c within 2 seconds required\n"; $prev_ctrlc = 1; } else { $prev_ctrlc++; } if ($prev_ctrlc == 2 ) { say "OK, that's two of 'em!"; exit; } }

Sample run:

C:\>C:\SQLite\ nothing yet nothing yet nothing yet # single tap here Second ctrl-c within 2 seconds required nothing yet nothing yet # double tap here OK, that's two of 'em! C:\>

The sleep's could annoy your users, as they might seem like the machine is (briefly) locking up.

If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!

    Agreed on sleep. I need to stop using it and start remembering time instead. Cheers
