Scheduling Tool using Perl

lezzfrancis has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I am new to Perl and am trying to write a scheduling tool using Perl. Basically the tool should read a dependency file and execute shell scripts when the dependencies are met. When multiple shell scripts have met their dependency they will need to run in parallel. This will need asynchronous execution and once a thread is started(shell script) it should execute on its own and once complete should send a signal to the parent. I was researching online on even driven programming and its a bit complicated. If someone could suggest a good module in CPAN or to even use standard Perl functionality it will be great. Please excuse me if my question is quite trivial. Thanks, Neo
