My reading is that OP did want to be interrupted, but didn't want to jump straight to the end of the program. He wants the interrupt to kill the current eval-block, but then to do some more processing. I could make his example a bit more tricky by requiring that we recover from the interrupt, rather than dying. I.e.
START: my $interrupted = 0; eval { local $SIG{INT} = sub { $interrupted = 1; die }; ... } if ($@) { if ($interrupted) { print "Operation was interrupted by ^C. Press <return> to retry, ^ +C to die\n"; scalar <STDIN>; goto START; } }
If the interrupt hits when the code is in a DTOR, then it will not kill the eval block, and the user will not be asked to retry. In fact, the only effect of the interrupt will be to set $interrupted; and to cause some resource to not be properly cleaned up. We could detect that this happenned by checking:
if ($@) { ... } elsif ($interrupted) { print "interrupted but didn't die. Must have hit ^C during DTOR. Sor +ry.\n"; die "better late than never!\n"; }

Title:
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.
