in reply to Signal Handling throws Core Dump

Not sure if it's a Solaris specific thing, but I used this on Linux with perl 5.8.8 and it works fine:

use sigtrap qw(handler sig_handler INT TERM QUIT PIPE); use Switch; sub sig_handler { my($sig) = shift; print "Caught signal $sig\n"; switch($sig) { case ["INT","TERM","QUIT"] { print "Exiting"; exit(0); } case "PIPE" { print "Continuing\n"; } } }

    Used this method but get the same result. It seems like as soon as I try to do anything that I get the core dump.

    This @ISA my( $cool ) %SIG
