Writing a Daemon on Windows/Linuxby hackdaddy (Hermit)
|on Nov 10, 2005 at 09:33 UTC||Need Help??|
hackdaddy has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm writing a daemon to send soap requests to a Apache web server running on Windows. If the soap requests return the appropriate XML string, I need to launch a child process/fork/etc to run and complete a task on the server from which the daemon is running.
It needs to be cross platform because some machines will be Linux.
Does anyone have any suggestions on which modules to use? Does anyone have any sample code of daemons?
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
