Subject: Support for Proc::Background on VMS
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 466b
Contrary to popular belief, Unix and Windows are not the only operating systems :). I would like to add support for VMS, and am interested in writing a Proc::Background::VMS module. However looking at the Proc::Background module, it does seem to require patching to add another operating system. Perhaps a more pluggable approach would permit this. Also I would be interested in seeing POD documentation on how to write such a plug-in for another operating system.

Hi, I'd gladly take a VMS module. I don't there would be a lot to do. At the top of the Proc/Background.pm is the test for the OS that is being used and the selection proper module that becomed the super class. I would just look for the $is_windows value in the module and change the code there. Then you would copy the Unix.pm or Win32.pm and make a VMS.pm. It could be made pluggable also. I don't have the time to help write POD for making this pluggable however. Patches welcome :) Best, Blair -- Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com> Plots of your system's performance - http://www.orcaware.com/orca/
