in reply to writing a basic bulkmailer

Before you write your own version of a Mail::Bulkmail, learn to use the one that's already on CPAN. Patch it if it doesn't do what you need. Pay someone if you can't patch it yourself. Heck, talk to the author about what you want to do that can't. Don't waste your time writing something new from scratch. That's purely a waste.

    Yea, sorry. You are of course completely right.
    After posting this node, i took Mail::Bulkmail home with me and dug into the code, and i am extremly impressed on how clean and nice it is, so i'll take that route. I blame the lack of caffeine. :-)

    but i still have that question about daemonizing: after forking and closing STDOUT, IN and ERR, apache does 'let go" of the CGI script's child process, but in perlipc it says something about POSIX::setsid. what does that exactly do, and is it required?

    thanks for the wake-up call. This node was really kinda superfluous.
