Couldn't just send a signal to yourself to awaken the sleeping kids/threads? Here is a forking example:

[root@devel3 logtest]# cat test.pl #!/usr/bin/perl $SIG{INT} = sub { print "Caught zap in $$\n"; exit }; if ( my $pid = fork() ) { print "Parent Start\n"; sleep 5; local $SIG{INT} = sub{ print "Parent $$ ignoring zap\n" }; kill 2 => $pid, $$; sleep 10; print "Parent exit!\n"; } else { print "Child start\n"; sleep 10; print "Child exit!\n"; } [root@devel3 logtest]# ./test.pl Parent Start Child start Parent 21850 ignoring zap Caught zap in 21851 Parent exit! [root@devel3 logtest]#

cheers
