I made a script in Perl, it forks a couple of times. Everything works fine... but I have this line "$| = 1;" on top to turn off buffering (I just copy/pasted someones forking example). I don't know exactly what it does or what effect it has on the forking. Can anyone briefly tell me what the effects are when I use this?
