@inaewerk,

Unfortunately this perl module does not work on Windows systems.

https://metacpan.org/release/LBAXTER/Sys-SigAction-0.23/source/Makefile.PL

print "Checking for Microsoft Windows... (not supported)\n" ;
if ( $^O =~ /MSWin32/ ) {
die qq{

OS unsupported
Sys::SigAction is not Supported on on $^O operating systems
if you can make all or most of the tests work on this OS, then
please send patches to me, and I will consider them for a new
release that supports $^O.
Note that smoke testers have had successful results in a Cygwin
environment however. So if you want to write scripts using
signals on a Win32 environment consider Cygwin Bash. \n\n} ;
