I've tested the CVS source 20031217 10:00AM (GMT+1) to see if fork/spawn works on Multi CPU (4 Xeon) with Windows 2003 Server (see old message about it in the mailing list). Unfortunatly It doesn't !

Below a test script, use it by running After some time (< 1 minute) one or more of the 5 sub-shell stop. This batch works perfectly using a single P4 cpu on Windows XP !

I don't know how many people out there have Multi CPU Xeons, but I
suspect there aren't many.  This works fine in my single CPU system,
as you note.

Thanks in advance, Philippe.

PS 1 : 4-5th attempt to send a mail to using three different mail account, gmane newgroup ! Anti-spam ? :(

Yes. ZIP file attachments.

PS 2 : Vital for me that this works before end of the month !

Sorry, but why would your urgency have any bearing on a community,
volunteer project?
Sorry too,
We have been surprised by our first test on a multi CPU engine, after one year of development without big problem (only a tee problem and rsync not very usable (now using robocopy instead)). And now we are close to the delivery on 3 Multi CPU Xeon. But probably like you, we have only mono processor PC, Pentium 3, Pentium 4 and Athlon XP.


I know that threaded applications are difficult to develop. I think you are our chance to correct this.
I can do test for you, but I can't give you access to this system !

I'm going to bed, thank you.
