in reply to Start an MS window in background from a perl script

The ampersand thing (-> put the process into the background) is something specific to nix (so will work under Cygwin), which will not be understood by MSWin.

A convenient wrapper around this distinction is the Proc::Background module, which will fork under nix and use Win32::Process under Win, depending on the hosting OS.
