nice, perl, fork and exec
Message ID:
I know this is going to sound like a Unix question, but...

If I run a perl script with nice, (in Unix it reprioritizes the process),
and fork in perl and run an exec "command" with the child, does the nice
priority apply to the child process also? and what about the exec of the
child process does it apply there too? 

While we are on the subject, what about system() and/or `` (backticks)?

man nice didn't give me any information about child processes.

This is probably a perlcore developer type question huh? Or more likely a
unix admin type question? if so anyone know of a good unix mail list?
