in thread Signal Handling throws Core Dump

I first want to clarify that there are WAY better ways to do this, but if you want to increment a global variable to detect a signal being caught this will do the trick. As Paul noted earlier you shouldn't be trying to do anything complicated in the signal handler itself.
our $sig; $sig = 1; $SIG{INT} = sub { $sig++; }; my $oldsig; while (1) { if ($sig != $oldsig) { $control->removeMonitorPID($monitor->{PID}); #Execute the code ori +ginally in the signal handler. $oldsig = $sig; } .... Run main loop, but make sure to poll the status of the global v +ariable .... }

    Can you mention some of the WAY better ways or point at some references for them?

    I actually did take the "complicated" code out of the sig handler and put it into a couple of conditional blocks as you demonstrated. I did still get the core dumps. However, I can't remember if I left the handler as simple as incrementing the global $sig. I'll give that a go...
