but neither changes to the object nor the %ENVironment seem to persist.

Hm. The second part of that is incorrect:

#! perl -slw use strict; $SIG{ INT } = sub { print 'SIGINT called'; $ENV{ fred } = 12345; return; }; $ENV{ fred } = 0; while( sleep 1 ) { print $ENV{ fred }; } __END__ C:\test>junk10 0 0 0 0 0 0 SIGINT called 12345 12345 12345 12345 12345 12345 12345 Terminating on signal SIGBREAK(21)

Which probably means that I've misunderstood your intent. Perhaps you could post some code to demonstrate the problem?

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.
