in reply to Limiting the number of forks

There is a module that already provides this functionality: Parallel::ForkManager

use Parallel::ForkManager; $pm = new Parallel::ForkManager($MAX_PROCESSES); foreach $data (@all_data) { # Forks and returns the pid for the child: my $pid = $pm->start and next; ... do some work with $data in the child process ... $pm->finish; # Terminates the child process }
The code above is an excerpt from the man page of P::FM.

Hope this helps,
