running Perl scripts in the backgroundby Anonymous Monk

Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Good morning fellow monks
I have a perl script that searches large files to find some entries that interest me.
These files are rather large, so my program lasts for about 5-6 days.
I run the script by entering '&' in the command line and I store my results in the output file.
I was wondering If there is a way of keeping track of the program, so that when, for example, my pc shuts down for some reason (e.g. problem with electricity), the program will continue where it left off
. Thank you
