in thread how to use angle operator with timeout?

Does that work on *nix? Cos it never times out on Windows.

      I know that they do not work on win32, and why.

      My question was: can signals -- alarm generated or otherwise -- interrupt blocking IO on *nix in under the auspices of safe-signals?

        This works on *nix:

        use strict ; use warnings ; my $timeout_in = 5 ; eval { local $SIG{ALRM} = sub { die "timed_out\n" }; alarm($timeout_in); while(<>) { alarm($timeout_in); my $in = $_ ; chomp( $in ) ; print $in . "\n" ; last if( $in eq 'exit' ); } alarm(0) ; }; if ($@) { die( "Hey ... whats with the slow typing ??\n" ); }

    Works for me (on Linux).

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
