Why wasn't the %INC handler called?

What the heck is an " %INC handler"?

Update: assuming you mean %SIG handler; I think this demonstrates that the Perl Windows sig emulation has code to prevent a process from attempting to signal itself:

C:\test>start /b perl -E"say $$; sleep 10000" C:\test>192904 C:\test>perl -E"kill 21, 192904 or die $^E" Terminating on signal SIGBREAK(21) C:\test>perl -E"kill 21, $$ or say $^E; say 'ending';" The parameter is incorrect ending

It doesn't make a great deal of sense to signal yourself to invoke a subroutine when you can just:

C:\test>perl -wE"$SIG{BREAK}=sub{ say 'BREAKing' }; &{$SIG{BREAK}}; sa +y 'ending'; " BREAKing ending

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    [Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
    [Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
    [GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
    [Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
