( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I couldn't get that to work:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; $SIG{TERM}= sub { print "TERM $$\n"; exit(1); }; if (my $kidpid = fork) { # Parent sleep(1); print "\n"; kill -15, $kidpid; sleep(5); } else { print "CREATED CHILD $$\n"; # Child for my $i (1..10) { if (!fork) { # Grandchild print "CREATED GRANDCHILD $$\n"; sleep(5); exit(0); } } sleep(300); }
Is there a bug in this code, or are things not working as documented?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
