Um, no, its hanging, if fork failed, program would end

$ perl -Mblib t/multi_content_type.t 1..8 # # ################################################################### # Starting an external Catalyst HTTP server on port 7357 # To change the port, please set the TWMC_TEST_PORT env variable. # (The server will be automatically shut-down right after the tests). # ################################################################### ok 1 - use ExternalCatty;

    Without looking further into this - my experience with fork() and sockets on Windows has led me to always spawn external processes (that is, HTTP servers) for module self-testing instead. Launching an external process via pipe-open works for HTTP::Server::Simple, WWW::Mechanize, WWW::Mechanize::Firefox and WWW::Mechanize::Shell.

    I would not bother with investigating why fork and sockets don't interact like on Unix, because the fork-emulation never handled that well anyway.

      Thanks
