in reply to Process as daemon, communicate back

Daemonizing your scripts doesn't really have anything to do with inter process communication. I know some folks use network sockets for communication between perl programs and there's some discussion over in the Q&A section under network programming section and a little bit under the programs and processes section. You could also search around the IPC modules on CPAN.

Hope that helps. I'm not experienced in these matters personally, just some observations.


Therapy is expensive. Popping bubble wrap is cheap. You choose.

[Spenser]: Perl 5.10.0
[Spenser]: It uses opkg to install software
[choroba]: 5.10.1 would be much better
[shmem]: there are so many ways thinkable to fix that situation, some feasible and some not, that I'm unable to give good advice.
[Spenser]: I installed 5.22 with opkg. I can use it with cpan. I'm actually trying to install perl-DBD-mysql, but couldn't with it. So I went back to the factory version, 5.10.
[Spenser]: So, nevermind about CPAN. I give up on the downgraded angle. I'm back to fighting to install DBD.
[shmem]: please open a SoPW. At what point is the perl-DBD-mysql installation failing?
[shmem]: do you have the mysqlclient libs on that device, for instance?
[shmem]: and btw, your original questian is an XY Problem classic ;-)
