tobbo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I'm currently working on a Catalyst project using FastCGI. The problem is, I can't figure out how to fork correctly within the application. A simple fork call leaves me with fastcgi zombie processes.

I've read the FastCGI FAQ ( ) and it seems like thats what I need. But I can't find a way to get the FCGI::Request object.

    Better yet hand the request (e.g. by another FastCGI-protocol link... why not?) to a true offline-service process. "POE" would do as a basis in a pinch. Let the online web-user monitor the progress of the batch job, and to retrieve the results when finished.
