in reply to I prefer to:

Sometimes I just use exec without the fork.

For example, one bit of code, running under cron, needs some environment settings made and rather than using a wrapper shell script I check the settings in the script and if not present make them then exec the script over itself.

Probably not the best or even a good way to do it but it does work.

[Corion]: A good morning everybody!
Corion watches with pleasure that Future::AsyncAwait now also works on 5.16. I think 5.14 is a good baseline for "modern" Perl, and that's only one release away from 5.16
[Corion]: (and I really like the async and await keywords as they do away with lots of anonymous subroutines)
