NAME ^

Schedule::Cron::Nofork - Nonforking cron module

SYNOPSIS ^

DESCRIPTION ^

Schedule::Cron::Nofork is a nonforking version of Schedule::Cron, so all jobs will run from one process. This has the advantage that it works on systems that do not have the fork() call and even on systems that have it, keeps the system load low because you don't have to create a new process for every cron job. It has the disadvantages that one long running job can disrupt the rest of the schedule and that a programming error in one job will bring down the whole program.

EXPORT

None by default.
