=head1 NAME

Linux::Pdeathsig - Perl interface to request a signal on parent death 

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  use Linux::Pdeathsig;

  set_pdeathsig(9);
  # now you will get SIGKILL when the parent process ends

  my $v = &get_pdeathsig;
  # get the signal that will be sent when the parent process ends

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This simple module provides two functions to set or get the signal that
the linux kernel will send when the parent process dies.  get_pdeathsig
returns 0 when no signal has been set.  set_pdeathsig(0) will clear the
setting.  Both functions croak on error.

=head1 EXPORTS

set_pdeathsig, get_pdeathsig by default.
