Anyone know of a Perl-based scheduler?
Yes, I've heard of cron. :-) What I need is a cross between cron and a
coordinator, e.g. Program A wakes up a 9 PM looking for a vendor file
that (supposedly) arrived by 8:30 PM. Program A will sit and wait for up
to eight hours waiting for that file. Program B launches at 9:15 PM but
can't run until the successful completion of Program A and Program B may
need to sit there for up to eight hours waiting on Program A.
You don't wanna know how Programs C, D, and E have to interact!
Each program has to be standalone, e.g. I can't compine them into one
large program, and I don't like the idea of a super-script running these
scripts via system().
