in thread They didn't give me a fork so I have to eat with a spawn.

I've never had much luck with ActiveState's fork. I don't even consider using it when I'm on win32. Most of my problems have been related to sockets. When a daemon accepts a connection and forks off, the socket doesn't have anything to say until the process dies. A socket that doesn't pass data isn't much use to me.

So I just keep the servers on the servers on client stuff like this on my workstation.

This code is more usefull for launching perl code without a dos window though, and that's why I wrote it. With this you don't have to bother hiding your dos parent in your code, it's already gone.
