It would probably be better to keep your kid pids as keys in a hash, then delete them as they are reaped. You are currently printing all of the pids that were created on ctl-C.

    I'm not sure what you mean, but I incorporated your suggestion and it didn't solve the problem.

    When I run the script (without pressing ctrl-c), it will say something like this at the end...
    Process 2555 exited. Process 2558 exited.
    The problem is that I know the script create processes 2556 and 2557 and the REAPER subroutine somehow did not catch it and in reality these children have exited already.
