tphyahoo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Could someone point me up the equivelant in perl?
I reckon this amounts to, what's the process for translating forking from bash to perl.
UPDATE:#!/bin/bash konqueror http://www.google.com & pid=$! # give the page some time to load sleep 5 kill $pid
Also, for those interested in shell-equivelance strategies, I posted essentially the same question to haskell-cafe.
