in thread How can I run a piece of code asyncronously in Perl?

t won't work... Thread would be terminated, I suppose.

Why "suppose"? Did you try it?

C:\test>perl -Mthreads -E"async{ qx{perl -E\"sleep 5; die q[Now I'm do +ne];\"} }->detach; select'','','',0.1; die 'I\'m done'" I'm done at -e line 1. C:\test>Now I'm done at -e line 1.

So long as you give the thread chance to start the command running, it will complete even if the thread dies.

Ie. " runs completely independently of".

It's probably not how I would do it; but then 'it' -- as you've defined it so far -- is so completely pointless, I probably wouldn't do it at all.

But if I did, on Windows I'd probably use system 1, ' arg1 arg2 arg3';

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

[erix]: that should be "to an already-too-late- project" I think
[ambrus]: oh yes, we have a pretty good example of that when they reorganized the grill place in the restaurant nearby.
[ambrus]: it now has two more people working there, and they're serving slower and more expensive.
[ambrus]: It used to be just a master cook who takes the order and puts the meat and eggs on the open grill plate table, and an assistant who removes them to a plate, adds the side dish, and gives the plate to the people in the queue, plus a cashier.
[ambrus]: Now it has five people instead of three, some sort of call number ticket system where people wait a lot for their food to get ready (it's the same kinds of grilled meat and fish on the same equipment, it won't actually fry slower),
[ambrus]: it's slow as hell, and the food costs significantly more.
[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
LanX Everybody quotes it, some people read it, and a few people go by it
[ambrus]: LanX: why would I read it? isn't it a book for managers? I don't want to be a manager.
[ambrus]: I don't quote it either.
