in thread background Win32 process'

zuqif, the script I posted above is intended to launch another script in the background ( in the example).

So, you need to change whatever needs to be changed to match your system (my perl install dir is non orthodox)

I tested the script before posting (even tryed to do a use strict, but it barfed some errors related to Win32 and I droped it, since this was just a code sample) and it worked as intended (by me, at least ;^)

I'll put here the progie that I used as the background process, save it as in the same dir as the previous code and the try running the previous code and checking for the c:\daemon.log file

use strict; my $log_file = 'c:\daemon.log'; open (LOG, ">$log_file") || die ("cant create $log_file : $!"); for ($i = 5 ; $i > 0 ; $i--) { print LOG "daemon running $i\n"; # print "daemon running $i \n"; sleep(1); } print LOG "thats all folks\n"; close LOG;
The first script could even acept as parameters the name of the perl script it should run in the background,
