in reply to spawning multiple child processes

Hmm. I was thinking about this, and I just though maybe, I could use system(), use POSIX: setsid with the children to get them to separate (and set their STDIN and STDOUT to /dev/null, etc.), and have the system() call finish off that way. I think that would work. Naturally I think of it a minute after I press submit...
