in thread spawning Perl scripts

By George your right!

I tried fork and exec, but it just waits for the long process using the win32 Apache. system(1,cmd_to_run) works fine as will system(nohup cmd_to_run &) for the unix version.

I considered using a trigger file and a separate process, but I prefer a self contained set of scripts.

I'm forever in your debt.
