Subject: scp returns false even on success if a zombie reaper is active
Download (untitled) / with headers

Hi. Not sure if this is a bug or not. In short, a parent process has set SIG{CHLD} = &REAPER; so we dont get zombies. This reaper automatically reaps the child spawned in the Net::SCP::scp method causing that method to return false even on successful scps (because the "waitpid" call there returns -1). As a workaround I added this line before the system call in "Net::SCP::scp" method -- local SIG{CHLD} = 'DEFAULT'; This passes very limited testing but I do not foresee any problems with this. Do you? thanks, diff -u Net/ Net/ --- Net/ 2006-04-27 13:18:50.000000000 -0500 +++ Net/ 2006-05-10 12:13:21.000000000 -0500 @@ -90,6 +90,8 @@ my($reader, $writer, $error ) = ( new IO::Handle, new IO::Handle, new IO::Handle ); $writer->autoflush(1);# $error->autoflush(1); + # pjs patch + local $SIG{CHLD} = 'DEFAULT'; my $pid = open3($writer, $reader, $error, @cmd ); waitpid $pid, 0; if ( $? >> 8 ) {
