in reply to Threads and signals in Windows

It sounds like you are a MSWindows promoter and are trying to alter Perl's development to suit Windows by taking away all the useful Unix tools ... how is that being cross-platform? Why should Unix/Linux developers give a damn about Window's problems? After all, most of our so-called cyber-security dangers come from the widespread use of the inferior Windows OS.

I say phase out MSWindows, and move everyone to Linux.

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
