The reason is simple , lexicals (my) are destroyed/destructored/cleanedup in-order

Where as, globals are cleaned up during "global destruction" before program exits but not in-order as there is no order they're globals

You can short-circuit cleanup with POSIX::exit() for even faster exit, but then destructors and stuff dont ...


## $stuff not exist { our $stuff = 1234; } ## $stuff still exist { my $lexi = 1234; } ## $lexi cleaned up here but $stuff still exists { my $flexi = 1234; } ## $flexi cleanedup but stuff still exists exit; ## $stuff cleaned up here in whatever fast order it happens to come fr +om the perl memory stack

There are discussions on this just search for global destruction order, global destruction order

see sub DESTROY: Strange ordering of object destruction (global destruction order not guaranteed, Re^3: when is destroy function called ( perl -d:Trace dalek ), Re^2: Perl Gtk2 - ->destroy() is Not Causing the Script to Exit

Why does Perl have this odd behavior during cleanup?

Heheh, its always funny when people (me too) say something is odd/weird ... almost as if they're trying to say I know stuff but this doesn't behave like it should (i used to think this but I know better now)... but what they really mean is always I don't know what should be happening, why is there a difference in what is happening, even if they don't think this is what they mean

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.
