Is there any way to "catch" signals sent to a perl program like SIGTERM or SIGKILL? In C there is the signal() call, which could catch a signal and send it to a function for further processing, is there some equivalent of this in Perl?

    Yup, you assign a callback to that signal using the %SIG hash. For example:-

    [code]# This sub is the handler.
    sub sigint {
    print "Got a SIG INT
    ";
    }

    # Now we set it up as the SIG INT callback.
    $SIG{'INT'} = &sigint;
    [/code]

    I also looked up the appropriate page on PerlDoc for you:-

    /(p.{2}l)/;$_=$1}$::b=~/(..)$/;print("$::a$::b $::c hack$1.");
