mojo2405 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a code now that starts fork (with few childs). Each child runs few threads.
What I want to do is to - catch a ctrl + c from user by the parent (this part is working for me) , send a signal to the children that kills immediatly the threads and do some more code (write to DB, etc..) - this part is half working for me. the part that working is the children actually catches the signal ( I'm using USR1 signal ) , and hte part that doesnt work for me - us that it catches it only when the threads end. if not threads run in the fork children - the form catches the signal immediatly.
Any ideas guys ?
this is how I send the USR1 to children :
kill USR1 => (keys %framework_child_procs);
