( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I ran into this problem just the other day. I had a time consuming database operation i wanted to happen right after a certain page call, but didn't want to make the client wait while i did it. So, fork, close STDOUT and STDERR and do my business. I remember when it dawned on me that the parent was outrunning the child to completion (as was my intention of course) and I'd lose the $dbh when it got there. After a brief affair with $dbh->clone() I decided to punt: just set a flag and made a cron job...

but maybe we'll go look at that again....

Thanks kyle!

Title:
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.
