in reply to Introduction to Parallel::ForkManager

Very nice description of one of my favourite and most-used modules there.

The only thing I'd add to your description is just how good this approach is when handling a lot of batchfile work on multiprocessor machines.. when I had a program doing the same rather intensive thing to over 20,000 large files I found that doing the ForkManager approach really screamed compared to the single process method, and without the nastiness of poking Fork() myself.
