Subject: kill(0, $pid) should not die
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 239b
kill(0, $pid) is often used to check if a process exists and can be signaled. The current version of autodie (2.19) dies if $pid doesn't exist or can't be signaled by the current user. When the signal number is 0, autodie should not die.
