in thread Dormus interruptus

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
