Hi wise ones, I've defined a routine in my script to handle the SIGINT signal .
main(); sub main () { $SIG{'INT'} = 'exit_handler'; for ( my $count = 1 ; $count <= 3 ; $count ++ ) { child_fork(); } } sub exit_handler () { print " I caught CTRL-C \n"; ### Do cleanup . kill the children $SIG{'INT'} = 'DEFAULT'; exit; } sub child_fork() { my $child_pid ; $child_pid = fork(); if( $child_pid > 0) { print "returning to parent\n"; }else { my $count = 0 ; while ($count <= 60) { print "In child now "; sleep 1; $count=$count+1; } print "returning to parent now \n"; exit; } }

I fork some children from the parent. And when the children are running , I send the SIGINT signal to the parent by pressing CTRL-C on the terminal. But the parent is not handling the SIGINT signal.

If no children are forked, the parent catches the SIGINT signal without any issues and exits.

Any pointers on what I am missing will be really helpful .

Thanks, Girish HV

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
