On my website, i have a perlscript that needs to run for 5 minutes instead of al the other scripts' 60 seconds.

I know this can be set in apache or something, but this script is an exception and i would like it that only this one gets five minutes before being terminated.

usually I make my sites in Active Server Pages, and one cat set this property in the script using

scripting.timeout = 300

(for five minutes)

how can this be achieved in perl?

You could try the follwing on Perl's side:

$SIG{ALRM} = sub { die "alarm\n"; exit; };

alarm 300;

while( 1 ) {
  print "Hello World!\n";  
}
