    Proc::Simple CHANGES
######################################################################

          from 1.25: Localize special variables so that the exit status 
                     from waitpid doesn't leak out, causing exit status 
                     to be incorrect (RT33440, fixed by Brad Cavanagh).

          from 1.24: Added copyright header

          from 1.23: Applied doc patch by Janne Chr. Schulz

          from 1.22: Applied patch by Jeff Holt, providing start
                     and end time of the forked process via t0() and t1().

          from 1.21: Added patch by Chip Capelik to provide a wait()
                     method waiting for a process to terminate.

          from 1.20: Added patch by Tobias Jahn <tjahn@users.sourceforge.net>,
                     to redirect STDOUT or STDERR of the child process upon
                     request.

          from 1.19: Fixed bug which occurred on failed fork()s, as 
                     reported anonymously on the CPAN bug tracker.

          from 1.18: Added multi-arg start method (proposed by
                     Clauss Strauch <Clauss_Strauch@aquila.fac.cs.cmu.edu>)

          from 1.17: Fixed Version difference between Makefile.PL
                     and Simple by using VERSION_FROM (thanks
                     Andreas Koenig)

          from 1.16: Fixed bug with Proc::Simple instances which
                     were DESTROYED before they were ever started.
                     Many thanks to Russell Fulton (r.fulton@auckland.ac.nz)
                     for pointing this out.

          from 1.15: Added %DESTROYED hash for processes which might
                     still in zombie state right after their objects
                     went out of business. THE_REAPER will take care
                     of them.

          from 1.14: Added exit_status() method and a smart
                     REAPER which reaps only processes we've started before.

          from 1.13: Replaced two erronous uses of 'exists' by 'defined'.
                     Thanks to Rolf.Beutner@telekom.de for pointing this
                     out.
          from 1.12: To fight problems with zombies, replaced the wait()
                     function by a NOWAIT waitpid on systems that 
                     support it.

                     Tim Jenness <t.jenness@jach.hawaii.edu> included
                     kill_on_destroy/sig_on_destroy/pid methods.

          from 1.11: binkley's error: threw out waitpid, wait is
                     performed by signal handler now.

          from 1.1:  Process is now called Proc::Simple to fit in the
                     CPAN namespace, corrections Andreas Koenig suggested.

First Release:  05/22/96
