in reply to Signal Capturing....

Definitely do a “Super Search” on this one, because it is a frequently asked question.   There are at least three aspects to this FAQ:

  1. How to go about receiving the signal, especially in Perl’s version of multi-threading.
  2. How to cause the program to stop, not “in its trac...” but, “at an appropriate stopping-point, as soon as possible.”  
  3. How to efficiently wait for the signal to resume.
... and ... heh ... how to do that and debug that without losing your remaining hair in the process.

Start searching here.

    1. How will searching Perlmonks find a solution to a Tcl question?
    2. WTF has that got to do with "Perl’s version of multi-threading"?

      If type ^C or ^break on any of my threaded perl scripts, they abort immediately just like any non-threaded script.

    You'll be familiar with the abbreviation GIGO; with you its more GOGOGOGOGOGO....

[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
[marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
[marto]: some hardware/makey thing
[Corion]: marto: Ah, I'm currently drifting to that again, over"painting" (well with Inkscape) one of my photographs and thinking about vectorizing some other images ...
[marto]: Corion, yes something 'artistic', so that or some music. Even combine some things, build a musical instrument :)
[Corion]: marto: Naah, I'm avoiding that rabbit hole ;) Sometimes I think of using Perl to create MIDI to generate music, or at least the harmonies to which I could jam, but then that would eat even more into available time ;-))
