You can get one decent intro in the perldocs (perlfork,
perlipc, perlthrtut).

Schedule::Parallel and Schedule::Depend have a fair degree
of commenting on the forking section. If you eyeball the
stuff in Schedule::Parallel it should give enough of a
framework to try it yourself.

Other thing to check is the debugger tutorial. Setting the
terminal variable to find an alternate tty device for the
child process makes things enormously easier.
