in thread Proc::Background

ProcBackground::Init() is not mentioned on the Proc::Background CPAN page, hence I have not used it. I have been using the OO interface as documented in the POD.

And again, the documentation on that CPAN page is about using Proc::Background to start outside processes, not to start pieces of your program in a new process. It is not a drop-in fork replacement, nor do the docs imply this to me.

METHODS new [options] command, [arg, [arg, ...]] new [options] 'command [arg [arg ...]]'

All of these functions take commands as arguments, as they would be invoked by system(""). Perhaps you are using an internal API you are not meant to use? It is not documented!

    Oh heck. You know, I've been thinking of Proc::Daemon this entire time. Foo on me.
      Good deal, I didn't think it had super-cow powers like that :)

      I suggest we consider this sub-thread for deletion so not as to confuse everyone...pull the trigger if you want.

        Of course not. We don't do that sort of thing here.
