From: "Wechsler, Steven" <Steven dot Wechsler at mtvstaff dot com>
Subject: What happens to a db-library handle on a fork?
Date: Feb 3 2005 4:35PM

I'm creating a loop which will create multiple chld processes. Before the
loop I open up a DB handle, which needs to stay open while this fork occurs,
but the children do not need access to the database. Should I explicitly
close the handle in each child, just ignore it, or do something else?

Thanks,

Steve
