in reply to Fork limited childs and passing parameters

Hi chanakya,

I would recomend you to take a look at POE::Wheel::Run and the POE_Cookbook/Child_Processes_4 and POE_Cookbook/Child_Processes for simple examples on scripts that do stuff similar to what you pretend.

This examples use the POE::Wheel::Run module, that I successfully used in the past for paralel processing.

They are very simple to use, and give you a great deal of control.
