Changes for version 1.32

  • new strategy for reaping children: as local $SIG{CHLD} will reset rather than restore signal handlers, we try to reap children manually in the fork server. This might cause zombies to stay around for a long time in case there is a race and no further activity, but perls signal handling is just too broken to have other options.

Modules

everything you wanted to use fork() for, but couldn't
avoid having to exec another perl interpreter
generate a template process from the main program
