in thread Problems with ftp scripts

THX AgentM,
I think so, that problem is in forking into separate proces. And you'r right I running script under winnt4 an win9x platform. I use same technique which merlyn describe in his Web Techniques Column 20. But no succes.

Anybody had same problem with forking under win32?
Whole problem is that my webserver probably terminate both child and parent processes, so ftp transfer is interupted before it can end.

Any suggestions? I will be glad if there can be other way than using ext. ftp program.
I will try to separate script into two independent scripts and start ftp script by system call. This should work but this isn't purist solution.
