in reply to Re: SIGDIE
in thread BEGIN, END, eval and die.

The basic rule is that if die is called, your program terminates. As with all rules, this one has exceptions. eval is like a separate program. The eval call will terminate, but will not end your program.

However, it WILL call any handler you have defined in $SIG{__DIE__}. This is something you must keep in mind when writing a sigdie handler. Either check $^S, or don't plan on actually terminating. A large part of my post concerned the pitfalls surounding this point.
