in thread hash elements are lost during reaping

Thanks for the reply. My fork routine saves pids of children in another hash to be compared in the processing routine:

sub StartJob { my $pid; my $sid = shift; FORK: { if ($pid = fork) { # # This is the dispatcher! # $JobPIDs{$pid} = $sid; # add pid, sid pair to th +e hash } elsif ($pid == 0) { ....

The processing routine goes like this:

foreach $pid ( keys(%TrappedPIDs) ) { $rc = $TrappedPIDs{$pid}; print " CHECKING: trapped pid: $pid RC: $rc \n"; if ( exists($JobPIDs{$pid}) and $rc == 0 ) { # do the processing .. }
%TrappedPIDs is a global hash. How come it can be different?

    With you showing only small code fragments, it's rather hard to say. It's kind of like the old joke:

    Goofus is searching for his diamond ring under a streetlamp.

    Gallant comes to help, and after about 15 minutes, he says "Hey--about where were you standing when you lost the ring?".

    Goofus: "Over there in the parking lot."

    Gallant (surprised): "Well, then why are you looking over here?"

    Goofus: "The light is better."
