Application Helper class and shutdown behavior

Hi ZeroC guys,

I just wanted to make a comment that the Ice documentation seems to be out of sync on page 294 of the manual.

• shutdownOnInterrupt
This function creates an IceUtil::CtrlCHandler that cleanly shuts
down your application. This is the default behavior.

If I am reading the source correctly (and not doing something else wrong). destroyOnInterrupt is instead the default behavior which is also undocumented. Easy fix of course placing:




It just took us a while to figure that out since we sort of were expecting that as the default.

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for reporting this, we'll correct the manual to reflect the code.

    Take care,
    - Mark
  • Great, thanks!


    P.S. Happily running ICE 2.0 by the way. It just keeps getting better!
