=head1 NAME
child_process - Execute ITL code in a forked child process
=head1 SYNOPSIS
[child-process] ... ITL ... [/child-process]
=head1 DESCRIPTION
Runs Interchange markup code in a forked child process.
Useful for off-loading processes that take a relatively long time to complete.
Has no effect if the body is empty or contains only whitespace.
Options are:
=over 4
=item filename
File name relative to catalog directory to file where output from forked
process should be stored.
=item label
Optional descriptive label for this process that will be put in the operating
system process list. Default is "child-process tag".
=item notifyname
File name relative to catalog directory where a file of zero length will
be created if the file in option 'filename' is created successfully.
This empty file could be used for notification purposes, e.g. as an
indicator that the child process has delivered its output. When placed
in web docroot space one could poll for the existence of this file and
when it exists bounce to a page that will display the results.

=head1 EXAMPLES
This is the parent process.
Child process starts here.
[child-process filename="tmp/report_[time]%Y%m%d%H%M%S[/time].txt"]
[query
list=1
sql="
... some long-running SQL query ...
"
][sql-line]
[/query]
[/child-process]
Child process ends here.
Some more parent stuff....
