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

Not sure if this is of any help (because on the Solaris 10 box I have within reach, there's only an older Perl installed), but just in case: the following works fine here

#!/usr/bin/perl our $sig; # same for my $sig $SIG{INT} = \&handler; sub handler { print "got SIGINT\n"; $sig++; } until ($sig) { print "running...\n"; sleep 1; } print "terminated.\n";

outputs as expected (until/when I send it SIGINT)

running... running... running... got SIGINT terminated.

Can you produce a backtrace, loading your core file in a debugger (gdb perl core, then, at the prompt, typing "bt" — in case you have gdb available, that is...)? This might give a first hint at where things are going wrong. (A perl binary built with debugging info would be better, of course...)


$ uname -a SunOS solaris10 5.10 Generic sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-2500 $ perl -v This is perl, v5.8.4 built for sun4-solaris-64int (with 27 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) (...)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
