in thread Number of times I've used goto in Perl
In the case of long running daemons, I prefer to write that as:
Of course, that assumes you aren't collecting stats over multiple loops.exec $0, @ARGV if $loop && sleep ($time || 300);
The advantage of using exec instead of a goto (or loop), is that if there's a memory leak somewhere (be it in your script, a module or library you use, or a in perl itself), it will accumulate with a loop, but not with an exec.
