t won't work... Thread would be terminated, I suppose.

Why "suppose"? Did you try it?

C:\test>perl -Mthreads -E"async{ qx{perl -E\"sleep 5; die q[Now I'm do +ne];\"} }->detach; select'','','',0.1; die 'I\'m done'" I'm done at -e line 1. C:\test>Now I'm done at -e line 1.

So long as you give the thread chance to start the command running, it will complete even if the thread dies.

Ie. " runs completely independently of".

It's probably not how I would do it; but then 'it' -- as you've defined it so far -- is so completely pointless, I probably wouldn't do it at all.

But if I did, on Windows I'd probably use system 1, ' arg1 arg2 arg3';
