in reply to exec vs. system

Based on the above responses (and the fact that you are using Windows), maybe using threads might be a better solution for you?

See BrowserUK's posts for some good examples. Try this one which uses threads to run system commands or this one which uses Thread::Queue (but no system command).

[ambrus]: You hvae to be careful with the timer, because apparently Prima::Timer insists on being periodic, wheras AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::timer should give a one-shot timer watcher
[ambrus]: I think the minimal implementation here is just a timer and io function, plus pushing to the @REGISTRY.
