NAME
    Thread::Cleanup - Hook thread destruction.

VERSION
    Version 0.07

SYNOPSIS
        use Thread::Cleanup;

        use threads;

        Thread::Cleanup::register {
         my $tid = threads->tid();
         warn "Thread $tid finished\n";
        };

DESCRIPTION
    This module allows you to hook thread destruction without fiddling with
    the internals of threads.

    It acts globally on all the threads that may spawn anywhere in your
    program, with the exception of the main thread.

    The hooks registered with this module will also be called when
    pseudo-forks (i.e. processes spawn on Windows for the "fork" emulation)
    terminate.

FUNCTIONS
  "register"
        register { ... };
        &register($coderef);

    Specify that the given block or code reference $coderef will have to be
    called (in void context, without arguments) every time a thread or a
    pseudo-fork terminates. More precisely :

    *   For joined threads, it will be called when "join" succeeds, after
        any "END" block local to the spawn thread ;

    *   For detached threads, it will be called if and only if the thread
        terminates before the main thread, and the hook will then fire at
        global "END" time ;

    *   For pseudo-forks, it will be called when "waitpid" succeeds, after
        any local or global "END" block ;

    *   It will never trigger for the destruction of the main thread.

EXPORT
    None.
