Subject: Net::Daemon fork mode on Windows/Strawberry Perl
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 633b
We are trying to use a RPC::PlServer service on a Windows machine running Strawberry Perl. RPC::PlServer inherits from Net::Daemon. We use fork mode, and the server keeps dying with "resource not available" after ~64th connection. From the list of processes/threads we think the child processes (threads under Windows) are not reaped when they exit(). Using the standard technique of ignoring child process states (i.e. $SIG{CHLD} = 'IGNORE'; ) did not help. Reaping the child processes explicitly using waitpid() helped, though. Please consider applying the attached patch or using it as a basis for more general solution. Thanks!
