in reply to END blocks in perl

I happened to stumble upon this (Perl Cookbook, section: 16.22. Turning Signals into Fatal Errors)

It discusses the sigtrap pragma.

    Can this be used to catch the seg faults and some of the whatevers that Sid has mentioned?
      You don't want a program that segfaults to continue. It tries to mess up the memory of your computer, and you should be glad it is not allowed to do so. A program which crosses its borders in that way should be examined and debugged immediately; it's not that kind of errors you can lightly sweep under the rug.


      _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                    /\_¯/(q    /
      ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
      ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
