Perl module to run external processes reliably


Proc::Reliable is a class for simple, reliable and configurable subprocess execution in Perl. In particular, it is especially useful for managing the execution of 'problem' programs which are likely to fail, hang, or otherwise behave in an unruly manner.

This module includes all of the functionality of the backticks operator and system() functions, plus many common uses of fork() and exec(), open2() and open3(). It incorporates a number of options, including sending data to the subprocess on STDIN, collecting STDOUT and STDERR separately or together, killing hung processes, timeouts and automatic retries.
