fork error when trying to verify
Hi, first I want to complement you on the scripts. I have rummaged through all the messages and FAQ info and have gotten most everything going I think.

I run NT with IIS3 and activeperl. I am not positive but I think the LWP modules is part of the 5.07 distribution along with the FTP support. At any rate when I preform a verify links I get the following:

-----

Need to check 1 links. This could take a while.. please be patient:

CGI Error:
Message: fatal error: The Unsupported function fork function is unimplemented at C:\InetPub\ftproot\usr\john\links\admin\nph-verify.cgi line 135.

-----

I tracked down line 135 (literal - didn't know if I should skip the comments) to this:

if (!defined($pid = fork)) {
&cgierr ("cannot fork: $!");
}

...not sure what it means. If you could point me in the right direction that would be great.

I did get the IIS 'patch' and have intergrated it into the setup at the start, just to cover that area from the begining.

regards, john
