in reply to Re^4: pipe fork win32
in thread pipe fork win32

Is it advisable to use the Perl's fork() emulation in Windows in “production” code?
Windows just doesn't do "fork" very well. Threads are the way to go with Windows, but that model is more complex. BrowserUK knows a lot about how to do this on Windows. I would say that emulate behavior X on Y, often doesn't work out that well.
