  • At ValueClick we wrote a daemon that started out as "nonforker" from the Perl Cookbook. It has been used for many many billion messages since then without any problems. If your protocol is reasonably linebased and the system can work as a non forking daemon, then maybe I can release the code. (It's from my pre-ValueClick time and we just extended and optimized it (heavily) there).

      PPerl isn't line based - it passed the STDIN/STDOUT over the socket byte by byte. And it needs to fork (otherwise there's very little point - I would do it in POE if I didn't need it to work like this).

      On the other hand, I've just "solved" or hacked around the ARGV magic stuff. Not sure why what I did worked, but that's what you get with wierd stuff like I'm trying to pull off.
