Importing package for perl5 module Async::Interrupt 1.01 as dependency
This module implements a single feature only of interest to advanced perl
modules, namely asynchronous interruptions (think "UNIX signals", which are
Sometimes, modules wish to run code asynchronously (in another thread, or
from a signal handler), and then signal the perl interpreter on certain
events. One common way is to write some data to a pipe and use an event
handling toolkit to watch for I/O events. Another way is to send a signal.
Those methods are slow, and in the case of a pipe, also not asynchronous -
it won't interrupt a running perl interpreter.
This module implements asynchronous notifications that enable you to signal
running perl code from another thread, asynchronously, and sometimes even
without using a single syscall.
