in reply to Opening simultaneous scripts

Well, if they're simply unrelated scripts (and if you're running Linux or something similar), you could just write a shell script which runs them in the background..
#!/bin/sh script1 & script2 & . . script30 &

If that's all you basically need, then writing a complicated Perl program with forking, signal-handling and all that seems a bit of an overkill. :)

    But, don't you see, that using the *shell*. That's blasphemy. No amount of arduous work could ever convince a monk to use a (*gasp*) shell script! Never! ;)
