It certainly is! You can use $r-->child_terminate(). You might put
this in a cleanup handler. You can see example code in
However, this isn't what I would do. I would make a cleanup handler
that checks somehow to see if the data has changed (stat a file for
modtime?) and then reloads the data. It's more efficient than
spawning a new process, albeit somewhat more complicated.
