in thread Program unexpectedly terminates

Yes, the code in the main package is exactly what I'm using- only the Crawler package is abreviated. Test::Trap is basically an eval and only traps &CORE::GLOBAL::exit, so I don't think it does anything else than what I've tried.

    Well, your code should be catching any normal exit case. You still won't be catching exit() within an eval block, but your END statement should happen nonetheless.

    I don't see any way forward other than basic debugging in order to narrow down where, exactly, this problem occurs.

      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'
        Thanks, I didn't realize that one.
