in reply to Re^3: DESTROY on CTRL+C
in thread DESTROY on CTRL+C

I'm not sure what you mean. As soon as the SIG{INT} handler is installed and I press CTRL-C while your program sleeps I can see the output of the sig handler ('Delete') and the output of the DESTROY method ('In DESTROY()').

To your second question:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; $SIG{INT} = sub { say "Caught a signal"; exit 1; }; say "Program started"; say "Starting to sleep"; sleep 3; say "I've been sleeping long enough"; END { say "I'm in the END block"; }

This code should give you confidence. In my case (Linux) the END block is executed.

I'm not sure whether you mix up the creation of a temp directory and temp file. You can create a temp file in your pwd and unlink it with:

my ($fh, $filename) = tempfile($template, DIR => '.'); unlink $filename;

As long as $fh is open you will have a file to write to and read from.

Have a look at:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; use Cwd (); use Fcntl (); use File::Temp qw(tempfile); my $pwd = Cwd::getcwd; say "pwd: $pwd"; my $template = 'somthing.XXXXXXX'; my $dir = '.'; my ($fh, $filename) = tempfile($template, DIR => $dir); say "filename: $filename"; system("ls -l '$filename'"); unlink $filename; system("ls -l '$filename'"); say "Now store 'Put some text in' in the file"; print $fh "Put some text in\n"; say "Written to file, try to read"; seek $fh, Fcntl::SEEK_SET, 0; while(my $line = <$fh>) { print "Found in file: $line"; } close $fh; say "End of prog";
