NAME

Acme::SexualReproduction - beacuse fork() is for unicellular ones.

VERSION

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS

This module allows you to improve the chances of your program kind to survive by mixing genes of their processes when creating a child process. Especially if your program is a K-strategic one.

In a "female" process:

    use Acme::SexualReproduction 'female';
    my $pid = female('unique ID', \%chromosomes);
    ...

In a "male" process:

    use Acme::SexualReproduction 'male';
    male('unique ID', \%chromosomes);

The child is spawned then from the female process.

EXPORT

Only two functions are exported: one for insemination (a "male" process) and one for allocating a shared hash of chromosomes and spawning a child (a "female" process).

male($id, \%chromosomes);

Tries to write the chromosomes to the shared memory of the female process with unique SHM $id. Sadly, does not return the child's PID.

$pid = female($id, \%chromosomes)

Shares a hash for the male process' chromosomes, waits for the insemination, mixes the genes and spawns the child process. \%chromosomes hash reference is changed in the child process.
