kick external script without waiting for it to end

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Steffen Knobloch, Jan 11, 2005.

  1. Hi,
    I am about to kick an external perl-script or a shell-command.
    But I don't want to wait for it to end.
    The main perl-script doesn't continue unless the called script has been
    finished or exited.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    That's a Frequently Asked Question. For the answer, have a look at:
