( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am getting the below error only when I try to create child process using fork in the code mentioned below

foreach $cmd(@commands) { if($cmd =~ /CGDCONT/i){ unless (fork) { eval $cmd; if ($@) { print "When executing: $cmd\nFollowing error occured:$@\ +n"; } exit; } } else{ eval $cmd; if ($@) { print "When executing: $cmd\nFollowing error occured: $@\n +"; } } }

Error msg when I run the above code:

Engine::_Execute(..\..\perl\modules/ 122: unless (fork) { DB<1> s Bizarre SvTYPE [37] at ..\..\perl\modules/ line 122. Engine::_Execute(C:/Perl/lib/ 97: { local $@; require Carp::Heavy; } # XXX fix require to not clea +r $@?

It means there are some localized scalar variables are trying to restore in a child process hence throwing error

"Attempt to free unreferenced scalar"

There is some modules where is used. I replaced all the places of carp with warn and tried but no luck still it is showing the same. Please let me know how to debug this issue.
