Expose PL_dirty, the flag which marks global destruction Maintained by:perl@FreeBSD.org Port Added: 03 Sep 2008 12:29:59 Also Listed In:perl5 License: ART10 GPLv1
Perl's global destruction is a little tricky to deal with WRT finalizers
because it's not ordered and objects can sometimes disappear.
Writing defensive destructors is hard and annoying, and usually if global
destruction is happenning you only need the destructors that free up non
process local resources to actually execute.
For these constructors you can avoid the mess by simply bailing out if global
destruction is in effect.
