Question About Perl's exit() Statement Generates Huge Response on PerlMonks
Dave Aiello wrote, "Yesterday, I posted a question to PerlMonks called How aggressively does Perl clean up when you exit()?. This question arose out of a discussion at one of our consulting clients where one of the client's managers expressed doubt about the robustness of a procedure we are using to exit from batch jobs we are writing during fatal error conditions."
"This question generated a much larger response than I expected. At last check, the question had seven or eight high quality responses, and the original question had been awarded over 100 experience points. I guess you can never tell the sort of question that will hold the attention of a technical community like the one that frequents PerlMonks."
"More importantly, I am convinced that the best policy when it comes to a question that falls between the cracks in printed Perl documentation is to do as much on-line research as possible, but also to pose the question on PerlMonks. I have never been disappointed."
