    fork(2) calls slow down as the parent process uses more memory due to
    the need to copy page tables.  In many common uses of fork(), where it
    is followed by one of the exec family of functions to spawn child
    processes (Kernel#system, IO::popen, Process::spawn, etc.), it's
    possible to remove this overhead by using the use of special process
    spawning interfaces (posix_spawn(), vfork(), etc.)
    
    The posix-spawn library aims to implement a subset of the Ruby 1.9
    Process::spawn interface in a way that takes advantage of fast process
    spawning interfaces when available and provides sane fallbacks on
    systems that do not.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
