in reply to exec() on Windows
Thanks. It worked both as .pl and .exe (pp).
I was trying calling cmd.exe directly to detach child processes without waiting for them, but this way is far much clear.
Strange that "start" with exec() does not work.
start is a "shell builtin" command and does not exist as an external program, which is why it does not work with exec.
