in reply to Fork parent process dies unexpectedly

One minor-ish style point, there is no need to do

use POSIX 'WNOHANG'; use POSIX 'setsid'; use POSIX 'sys_wait_h';
use
use POSIX qw( WNOHANG setsid sys_wait_h );
instead. Repeated use statements for the same module are redundant and become awkward quickly, IMHO.

If the information in this post is inaccurate, or just plain wrong, don't just downvote - please post explaining what's wrong.
That way everyone learns.

    Thanks for this suggestion.

    I redid the code as suggested, but it fails in this format on sys_wait_h. I get a compile error :

    use POSIX qw ( WNOHANG setsid EINTR sys_wait_h ); ### use POSIX 'sys_wait_h' ":sys_wait_h'" is not exported by the POSIX module Can't continue after import errors at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux- +thread-multi/POSIX.pm line 19 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./server.pl line 9
    Thanks I appreciate all the pointers. Ian
