in reply to Perl script to wait for a program to finish

system does a fork and wait. But if you want to completely disassociate the system call from the parent process (meaning spawn the system call and then just move on, letting it do its thing alone without reporting back), you probably need to read Complete Disassociation of Child from Parent, in perlipc for an example of one way.
