Also, if you want to make sure that acroread doesn't send anything to STDOUT that might mess up your screen, take a look at Proc::Daemon::Init.

    nope, Proc::Daemon::Init doesn't return to the parent after it is called, so you would still have to fork around it. it does have some nice code for fork-ing and close-ing all open handles so it's good to look at.
