in thread Perl TK

Anyone know why it is crashing out my perl? I believe I have it forked properly??

Why do you have exit(0) in the forked code? My guess is that exit is closing the script. Maybe it has something to do with fork being emulated by threads on MSWindows? See How does system(1,"foo") work on Windows?. Maybe all you need is "system(1, start $url)"

if ($pid == 0) { execute(system "start"); exit(0)

    Yeap, that worked.. Thank you.

    I added exit(1) because with fork I did not want any zombie children running around creating havoc on my memory and CPU.
