perlmonkdr has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi guys!!!

I working with fork and exec, basicaly i would like to execute 10 times (at the same moment) a program but i don't want wait that those programs finish, so, i think in exec, but when i use fork, it still wait the status of the program.

Exists a way or method to do this?

Let me give you an example:

my a=0; while (++$a <= 10) { unless (fork()) { # Here I want execute and continue without # wait the status exec( 'perl sleep.pl'); #This exit isn't necessary, isn't it? exit(0); } }

Any comment are welcome, thk U so much.
