in reply to Fork/Child Question

Here's how you can do it using threads, assuming that your Perl has threading built in. (run perl -V to check if you can use threads (look for usethreads=define)).

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use threads; foreach (0..100) { # create a thread to call the "run_system" subroutine # to run "ls -la" on the OS my $thread = threads->create("run_system", "ls -la"); $thread->detach; } sub run_system { my $cmd = shift; system($cmd); } __END__

    Or as a one-liner :)

    perl -Mthreads=async -le"async{ system 'dir'; } for 1 .. 100"
