Here is my stupid solution. It could fit your requirements if I understand well...

use strict; use warnings; # use this array to simulate 10 tasks my @array = qw(zero one two three four five six seven eight nine ten); for (1..5) { my $pid = fork(); next if $pid; test(2*$_-1); test(2*$_); exit(0); } print "Done\n\n"; sub test { my $work_on_index = shift; # do the work here print "text=$array[$work_on_index]\n"; sleep 1; }
