Introduction to Parallel::ForkManager
Thanks for the post.
I am new to Perl, and want to make sure I understand this right. When we say "$manager->start and next;" , doesn't what is below this statement (rest of the for loop that is) get skipped completely? I am having a hard time understanding at what point (and precisely how) the child process is spawned, where does it end, and how the code actually executes. Can someone please explain this a bit more? The way I see it, it seems like all these child processed are spawned but nothing happens after that since we are out of the for loop already!
Thanks in advance.
