The dir command is just a simplified example on what is causing the problem in my larger script, and I don't think this has to do anything with the file system because if i was to replace:

my @output = `$dir_cmd`;

with a system call


it works with even a 100 process's in parallel, the reason I son't want to use a system call is because I want to get the output and store it within a file

I even looked trying something like this:

system ("$dir_cmd >> out.txt");

but the output comes all mangled up, with so many process's trying to write to the same file at once, so I just store the output in a variable, and then copy it to the file within the smae child process, and it works for me in UNIX.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
