I want to spawn 1..n child processes in a way that the STDIN of the child is connected to one pipe file handle of the parent (writing to the child) and the STDOUT of the child is connected to a file handle of the parent talking results to the parent.
Is there a package out there supporting this kind of spawning and communicating. I know that you have to be careful not to get a deadlock with this kind of communication.
Backround for other solutions: I want to implement a process which grabs job tickets from database and dispatches them to 1..n worker scripts and then collecting the results. Probably there is also a ready to use solution out there.
