    If your going to use C and not C++, than you posted in the wrong section.

    It's a piece of cake :-)
    Code:
    #!usr/bin/perl -w
    
    use Errno qw(EAGAIN);
    
    FORK: {
      if ($pid = fork) {
        # Do something
        print "Parent closing\n";
        exit(0);
      }
      elsif (defined $pid) {
        # Open a browser
        exec '/usr/bin/mozilla';
      }
      elsif ($! == EAGAIN) {
        sleep 5;
        redo FORK;
      }
      else {
        die "Can't fork: $!\n";
      }
    }
    *Cela*
