in reply to Code and Process Efficency

I think the performance hit is due to your scripts all trying to use the CPU at the same time. Try calling the scripts sequentially, because you don't need all of them running at once (do you??).

@scripts = ('','',''); foreach $script ( @scripts ) { system( "perl -W".$script ); }
using system waits until one program finishes running before it executes another one.

    Actually, the scripts do need to run at the same time, hence the code as it was written. I wouldn't be trying to fork off multiple processes if I didn't need them to run at the same time.
