Are you sure your sub-scripts close at all?

You always can try forking, to fork them off and run for themselves. Another Good Thing is Proc::Daemon.

    well the way i've thought it up, the scripts aren't supposed to close at all.. they: print "go wash your car"; for (;;){ sleep 1209600; print "go wash your car"; } #instead of "go wash your car", its `cat sched.lst` and there is 4 scripts like this that get kicked off within the main script; if possible i want to execute simulatanously.
      The only way you can pull that off is by forking your scripts. Otherwise they will hang the calling script.

      Of course there are terminal issues, so make sure all the scripts are run in the background, otherwise there is only one script that can print. Also mind you the buffering of your OS.

      It is probably better to keep it all in one script.

      Cheers,

      Jeroen
