in reply to fork() on win32

If you can't use perl 5.6, then you are limited to using the Win32::Process module.

This gives you access to an API which quite closely models the Win32 API.

Basically you create a new 'Process' object (which starts a process) and then you can do things like sleep until it exits, or kill it or whatever.
