Thanks for the post, but do you know where I can get an example for the fork-exec solution, since in perlipc manual pages they mentioned that using eval-die can leave zombies and I would like to avoid that.

Thanks

    Did you actually bother to look at the code I posted?
    They mentioned that using eval-die can leave zombies
    As I said, the code I posted hasn't been finished yet. Work on it.

      Just a thought, if they suggested to use fork/exec there, why trying to sophisticate the eval/die solution, are there any advantages doing so, or is it the same effort?
