  1. exit does not create a signal so nothing in %SIG will be called.
  2. Inside a signal handler exit should behave similar to when called elsewhere, as it is possible for most signal handlers to choose not to exit they need to either exit or die themselves.
    Under *nix try (press ctrl+c 5 times to exit)
    perl -e 'my $ccc = 0; $SIG{INT} = sub { $ccc++; print "^C pressed $ccc + times\n"; exit 42 if $ccc >= 5 }; 1 while 1;'; echo $?
  3. One way is to set a flag right after the fork based on what side of the fork you are on.
    my $parentFlag; my $pid = fork(); if ($pid) { #parent process $parentFlag= 1; } elsif (defined $pid) { #child process $parentFlag= 0; } else { #error on fork die "some useful message: $!\n"; } END { if ($parentFlag) { #parent end code } elsif (defined $parentFlag) { #child end code } else { #end block after failed fork or exit before the fork? } }

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.
