Perl5 module to launch and control background processes

   The ProcSimple package provides objects that model real-
   life processes from a user's point of view. A new process
   object is created by

      $myproc = ProcSimple->new;

   Either shell-like command lines or references to perl
   subroutines can be specified for launching a process in
   background.  A 10-second sleep process, for example, can
   be started via the shell as

      $myproc->start"sleep 10";

   or, as a perl subroutine, with

      $myproc->startsub  sleep10; ;
