Sys-SigAction (0.10) *****

Used this module in tandem with DBD::Oracle in a professional environment and it worked like a charm. Normally you need to use the messier POSIX::sigaction interface with Oracle, but this module is a drop-in replacement for the traditional eval / local $SIG{ALRM} / alarm invocation that we all know and love. For that reason, it is essentially the de facto way to implement connect timeouts when using DBI and Oracle.
