It doesn't explicitly fork at all, unless that's used for open(FOO,
"cmd|"). The only tricky part is the serial port module, Win32::-
SerialPort, and it's POSIX friend Device::SerialPort. If there's a
compatible module for MacPerl you're in business. OS X should work
though, I think it uses POSIX serial ports, but I haven't actually
checked -- I don't have any serial ports on my G4 anyway :)
