( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi everybody, I would really appreciate some help with Proc::Simple.

I would like to use Proc::Simple to push an object method into the background ( If that is the correct way to term what I am doing ).

The Proc::Simple docs are really good, they just don't have an example exactly like my situation so my stupidity has unstuck me very quickly.

This is my code:

my $status = $child_procs{$host}{proc}->start( sub { $return = + $hinst->evtwait( GROUP => $host_in_transit->{copy_grp} +->{copy_grp}, MODE => '22', STATE => 'good', TIMEOUT => '9999' ) } );


The trouble is that the process backgrounds nicely but I am unable to keep the value returned to $return. Any ideas how I can do this ?

Ultimately, I will run up to 5 of these processes in the background and will store the $return in a hash.

Thanks Everybody.

Regards,
Darren
