A signal is notification to the process of a (nominally) asynchronous event. Examples are:

INT - the process has been interrupted e.g. by ctrl/c

HUP - the attached terminal session has disconnected ("been hanged up")

PIPE - a broken pipe has been detected

TERM - synchronous termination has been requested

and so on.

A simple listing of all signal names can be found by:

perl -e 'use Data::Dumper; print Dumper( \%SIG );'
The default signal handler (which generally just terminates the process as soon as it is invoked) can instead be trapped to your own code (sometimes called an AST or asynchronous system trap) by defining a routine reference as the relevant value in the %SIG hash, e.g.
$SIG{ HUP } = \&MyNoHup;
or
$SIG{ PIPE } = sub { warn ( "Broken pipe ignored; traceback follows:\n +" . Devel::trace() ); }
There are some modules which also assist signal handling, including POSIX

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
