Thank you. I did not think of this, and it does exactly what I wanted, which is to interrupt the sleep calls.

    Usual caveats about signals not being safe but if you use INT you can also catch ^C automaticlly to do a neat cleanup & exit. As an aside I also use a strategy like:

    $dbh = DBI->connect( .... ); END{ $dbh->disconnect if $dbh }

    to ensure clean database disconnects, having exhaused the available supply of connections in the past.

    cheers
