in reply to fork and spoon

The first thing you are doing wrong is not posting the code (ie the manager, or at least the part that is running the updater) that is not working :). Without seeing what you are doing in the code that is not working, it is very hard to diagnose. I can't tell what you are actually calling in the backticks or system(), whether it is hanging where you think it is hanging, etc.

    It's pretty straightforward. Variations that I tried are:
    system("update.pl &"); system("update.pl"); `update.pl &` `update.pl`
    And update.pl is -rwxr-xr-x and it starts OK from bash shell.
