in thread ExtUtils::MakeMaker and dot files

Hmmm, perhaps as plan B. My plan A would be telling the finder to stop polluting my directories. I don't own a Mac, so I don't have much experience with that. But my guess is that there may be a hidden setting somewhere to disable the unwanted behaviour.

[Corion]: Maybe doing a double-fork (daemonizing) can make go that information away, but maybe not
[Corion]: But I think my knowledge of unix/Linux datastructures is several decades out of date, so I don't really know what information it keeps on processes
[oiskuu]: The useful bits that relate to your process can be found under /proc/self. What information are you thinking of? Tty name?
[tye]: I just daemonized and getlogin() still knew who I had been.
[tye]: perhaps loginuid ? Not that I concede that something not being in /proc means it is not useful.
[Corion]: tye: That's really interesting, but maybe it is because getlogin() returns the name, or the uid, so if that user has been replaced by another user with the same uid in the meantime, that's no problem to the system...
