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

I get the following message when I call fork in my code, The Unsupported function fork function is unimplemented at line 3. Can anyone help me in this? Following is my code,
sub test { unless(fork) { exec " " } } &test

    Your version of Perl doesn't support the fork function. You can upgrade to Perl 5.6 and this may fix it, especially if you're on a Win32 platform.

    See ActiveState for Win32 binaries.

[choroba]: and in fact, you don't push into the target repo, you push into your branch of your fork
[choroba]: the maintainer of the upstream repo than "merges" the pull request, i.e. they pull from your fork into the upstream
[Discipulus]: ' i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo' =~ I (subj) want to push
[Discipulus]: chorobayour words are reasonable
[choroba]: I'm just repeating some else's words as I remembered them after having asked the same question
[choroba]: s/some/someone/
Discipulus what a pity all people do not speak only in eatalian..
[choroba]: we'd need video calls more often :)
