When you say:
Here is my code
what you forgot to say was that you've simply copied this code from this site, where there's an article written by David Chan, on April 20, 2001 (over 5 years ago!), which says:
$ perl -we 'fork || print for split //, "a" x 10'
when I run that on my computer, I get strange output. Instead of
printing "a" 2**10 times, the output contains random "1"'s, like this:
etc.. I suspect this is due to a failing malloc() or something, but
It is silent failure. Apparently similar commands don't output "a"s,
$ perl -we 'for || print "a" for 1..10'
It also affects different computers differently; the "x 10" needs to
be replaced by a higher value to get the same effect sometimes (but no
too high, or you'll fork-bomb your computer).
