wait

See the current Perl documentation for wait.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


wait - wait for any child process to die



wait



Waits for a child process to terminate and returns the pid of the deceased process, or -1 if there are no child processes. The status is returned in $?.
