in thread Get the current function used to handle control+z

It's a little clunky, but you can do the kill from within perl by counting SIGSTOP's position in $Config{sig_name} (which, unfortunately, is a space-separated list rather than an array.)

perl -MConfig -le 'for( split /\s/, $Config{sig_name} ) { last if /^STOP$/; $n++ } kill $n, $$'
This just counts signal names until it gets to STOP, and $n will contain the right number.

    There's no need to search signal number in $Config
    kill STOP => $$;
    will work just fine.
