DESCRIPTION

Installation instructions

This installs with MakeMaker as part of Win32::ProcFarm.

To install via MakeMaker, it's the usual procedure - download from CPAN, extract, type "perl Makefile.PL", "nmake" then "nmake install". Don't do an "nmake test" because the I haven't written a test suite yet.

UTILIZATION

Simple include the top 6 lines of code in a Perl script and define a bunch of subroutines. Don't use die in the subroutines.
