    Angry Help me with PERL !!!

    Can u guys help me with PERL? My problem is quite simple : I want to create a new process in a PERL program and pass it arguments. It is something like this :

    system('/MyDir/MyProg.pl $arg1 $arg2 &');

    I don't know what's wrong with this! So if u've got an idea I will be glad if share it with me...

    PERL help

    maybe this might help :
    $stat = system($program, $arg1, $arg2);
    die "$program died: $?" unless $stat == 0;

    Exclamation More precisely...

    Well I thank you for the tip. But more precisely, what I'm looking for is :

    --> creating a child process with arguments
    --> that the parent process doesn't wait for the ending of its child
    --> when the child is ended he terminates himself

    I think it's possible but I can't grab the right command...

    Question

    Not too sure about "Perl", but, concept that you're looking for is called "forking". In C, when you fork() a process the child acts as an indepdent process from the parent, inheriting the parents permissions. Maybe with that you'll be able to search http://www.google.com for a tutorial, or information on how to fork() processes in Perl
