Any way to send signal from a thread to his parent thread?

anaconda_wly has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I created a thread from main listening commands from the remote. If command is an "END" command, the listening thread should notify the main to do sth. and then exit. I see Thread::signalling can notify from main thread to a child thread. How to do the reverse?

 No code yet.

    you could use a signal queue created with Thread::Queue. The children can then post messages to main on the queue.
