    Calling exec() within a pseudo-process actually spawns the requested e
    +xecutable in a separate process and waits for it to complete before e
    +xiting with the same exit status as that process. This means that the
    + process ID reported within the running executable will be different 
    +from what the earlier Perl fork() might have returned. Similarly, any
    + process manipulation functions applied to the ID returned by fork() 
    +will affect the waiting pseudo-process that called exec(), not the re
    +al process it is waiting for after the exec().
