in reply to Process management

You should also check out Network Programming with Perl. The first two chapters are devoted to exactly what you need. Then, after you master those concepts, you've got a whole book on applying that knowledge to networking. Awesome book!

Process management is the fancy name for getting programs to 'talk' to each other, keeping track of what a program is doing, keeping track of the children spawned, etc. Very important stuff.
