in reply to How do I run a background command via Net::SSH::W32Perl

There are 2 ways I know of:

#backticks using start<br> my $rv = `start exceed.exe`; #system using the 1 option system( 1, "exceed.exe" );

    Perhaps I am not following your response. This looks like a solution toward starting the exceed process on my win32 system. What I am looking for is a method of running a command in the background on the remote Unix system via Net::SSH::W32Perl.
      Hi boat73,

      Perhaps man nohup would be worth reading.

      Hope this helps.
