Re: END blocks in perl

in reply to END blocks in perl

what will prevent the END block from executing?

exec, for starters:

perl -le 'END { print "Can you hear me?" } exec $^X, -le => exit => 0'

Also, internal errors (segfaults, core dumps, whatever):

perl -le 'END { print "Can you hear me?" } dump'

So don't rely on it too much.

print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},"
The Sidhekin proves Sidhe did it!
