( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a script (obviously) that isn't doing exactly what it is supposed to. The intent of the script is to act as a daemon, where every few seconds or minutes, it contacts a MySQL server to get information and processes that info. Now, for the problem. It dies. The script cannot last for an extended period of time. We need to have crontab trying to keep it alive. What kinds of things can kill it? (We trapped the signals so that we could figure out what signals were occuring, but none of the handlers were being called. So, the thing just "disappears" from memory without a trace. Ideas? Joe

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
