wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello this is my first post and I am kind of new so let me know what I am doing wrong(I am sure theres something). Basically I am writing some scripts for optical remote (across the office) drive testing. I got a simple client server setup. I would like to use threads to minimize the amount of commands I must pass through. Right now there are 6 remote machines running the server script along with some other scripts. However I do not like opening 6 client windows on the main controlling computer. I would like to open one window that gathers the ip addresses from a config file which I already have a firm grasp on. The output from the servers I would like to use threads but I dont want all of it scrolling in one window. I would like each thread to open its own window and still be able to pass data to the parent and/or server. Short version I want each thread to open in a new window. I have searched the first ten pages of google which usually can help me hack something together but not this time. I am using opensuse so linux solutions are appreciated.
