NAME

Parallel::ForkManager::Child - role adopted by forked Parallel::ForkManager processes

VERSION

version 2.02

SYNOPSIS

   use 5.10.0;

   use Parallel::ForkManager;

   my $fm = Parallel::ForkManager->new;

   say "parent does not consume the child role: ", $fm->does('Parallel::ForkManager::Child');

   $fm->start_child(sub{ 
        sleep $_;
        say "but the child does: ", $fm->does('Parallel::ForkManager::Child');
        say "child $_ says hi!"

   }) for 1..3;

DESCRIPTION

When the parent Parallel::ForkManager object forks a child process, its forked incarnation consumes this role. The role doesn't do much: it changes the returning values of is_child and is_parent in the way you'd expect, change start so that it'd die if called from within the child, and change the implementation of finish to potentially send data back to the parent process.
