in reply to spawning multiple child processes

You are looking for the fork command. Fork creates two running processes, one the original and one the clone. A process may fork itself as often as it wants. This is how you do your 150 child processes.

Several people have built modules around fork, such as parallel::forkmanager or parallel::taskmanager can't remember names.

In your case, however, I think you just want to fork 150 times. Read the man page very closely, it takes a bit to wrap your mind around it.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
