in reply to Win32: Starting and stopping processes (part 1)

Ostensibly, this is effectively equivalent and should work fine -- though I'm less sure about "DGRAM sockets" -- on windows:

#! perl -slw use strict; my @pids; $SIG{'INT'} = sub { kill 'INT', @pids; }; push @pids, system 1, $_ for qw[ ]; while( 1 ) { ## do stuff; }

That said, I'd almost certainly use threads & queues rather than processes and sockets.

    How many different varieties (color, size, etc) of socks do you have in your sock drawer?
