Check out the fork() function. On the other hand, I don't know much about
Win32, and there might be alternatives to it that work better on Win32.

  Subject: SPUG: running multiple scripts concurrently

  Here is the scenario.
  I have a perl scripts (first.pl) which does a system call to initiate a
2nd script (second.pl) or a 2nd executable (second.exe). I would like to
initiate a 3rd script (third.pl) from  first.pl  while  second.pl  is still
running. The second and third scripts are independent of each other and do
different things (meaning neither task has to be completed or completed
successfully for the other script to do its task). All this needs to happen
on a Win32 platform.

  Thanks for any help and/or direction.
