Activestate's perl will emulate fork on windows. I don't know if NT has a
real fork or not (I thought NT was POSIX and should thus support fork, but
maybe that's not true). But, I use a piped-fork (open $pipe, '-|') which I
think can be emulated by explicit pipe and fork calls in perl. I just
haven't looked enough at it.
I also use an ALRM signal. Can that be done in Windows?
