in reply to perl SIGnal process

The operating system has its default ways to treat signals. Special application code is executed only if a signal handler is explicitly installed. If there is no handler, some default action will be taken, which should be documented. My system has informative man pages for "signal" in sections 7 and 2.

Setting a signal to its default behavior is documented in perlvar:

$SIG{'INT'} = 'DEFAULT'; # restore default action $SIG{'QUIT'} = 'IGNORE'; # ignore SIGQUIT

    $SIG{'INT'} = undef
