Since this works for you, everything may be Great!

However since this process is long-running, it might be better to pre-fork some number (maybe 8) of waiting children. Currently, you 'fork' for each message, and 'fork' uses a lot of computer power just to start.

If you 'Super Search' on 'pre-fork' you should find examples.

Use 'kill -0 $pid' to see if the child is *working*, and the parent can 'fork' another child is not.
Please note, this is not a trivial script, but once you learn how to use the technique, you'll be very glad/proud of your work!

Good Luck

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
