Here's a simple code snippet that replicates the behavior. The program creates a job queue with 10 jobs and has 4 workers act on those. The jobs are sleeps from 0-5 sec. If you let the program run to completion, it prints "workers done" and then "END block executed". If you interrupt it with ^C you get nothing, not even an error message.
use strict; use warnings;
use threads;
use Thread::Queue;

my $Q = new Thread::Queue;
for (my $i = 0; $i < 10; $i++) {$Q->enqueue(int rand 6)}
my @worker;
for (my $i = 0; $i < 4; $i++) {$worker[$i] = threads->create(\&worker, $Q)}
for (my $i = 0; $i < 4; $i++) {$worker[$i]->join}
print STDERR "workers done\n";

sub worker {
	my ($q) = @_;
	my $tid = threads->tid;
	while ($q->pending) {
		my $job = $q->dequeue;
		print STDERR "processing sleep($job) in thread $tid\n";

	print STDERR "END block executed\n";

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.
