( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
monks,

i am working with fork, %SIG, and the END block on version 5.8.6, and i have a few curiosities:

  1. when exit is used, is a SIG called (i tried INT and QUIT) or only the END block?
  2. what happens when you use exit inside of a terminating signal subroutine? it knows it is already exiting, so is exit ignored, or will it still use the return value specified, if any?
  3. when working with fork, can you "instruct" code within an END block to only execute for the parent and not the child?

thank you.

edit: sorry for the name botch on the reply etm, i just got back from lunch :P

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.
