[Melbourne-pm] fork()ing Windows

Can anybody tell me what the status of fork() is on windows?
I have a program I am trying to port from Linux to Windows. The program uses quite a few fork()s. The basic structure is something like this:
#Do something here.
#do something else here
#And do something different again here..
Under Perl V5.6.1, is the fork function able to handle this, or do I need to use Win32::Process to create distinct processes for each child? I have heard that windows doesn't fork very well.
And what about the kill(USR1)?
