threads eval/alarm problemby fxmakers (Friar)
|on Mar 27, 2004 at 00:39 UTC||Need Help??|
fxmakers has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm having some troubles using eval and alarm in threads:
The thread is created and runs fine until the 10sec timeout.
When this amount of time is reached, the whole script freezes, and 2 or 3 sec after, it crashes displaying "Alarm clock".
Nothing is in $@.
