[ #32096 ]

So, I went and released POE-Component-CPAN-YACSmoke-0.08 to CPAN.

The biggest improvement has been the mungling of MSWin32 support so that we can now properly fork another perl instance.

This has been a long running issue with POE::Wheel::Run, in that one can't launch another instance of perl.

I have mungled it to work in PoCo-CPAN-YACSmoke by using Win32::Process to launch a new instance of perl.

And it seems to work. Hooray.

( I have started work on porting this technique back into POE::Wheel::Run, but it is not quite ready yet. Watch this space ).

There is a strange caveat though. I found when using the that on MSWin32 it disliked getting the list of recent modules. I fixed this by manually creating a file containing a list of recent modules and used the command-line option --jobs, and it starting processing them. Weird, no. *shrug*

So maybe if some MSWin32 smoke testing people would like to have a go with it, I'd be grateful of any feedback.
