As you know, on Windows, forking is emulated using a thread
I had read that, though I'm not really "up to speed" when it comes to "forking" or "threads".
Having spent my spare (sparse) moments over the last week or so trying to learn a little about this, I now find myself thinking "Wouldn't it make more sense to have emulated forking by using system() ?"
I'm thinking that way because it seems to me that system('perl -e "..."') comes closer to the *nix fork() than anything else.
Needless to say ... I stand to be corrected :-)
