Subprocesses

P: 5
Greetings strangers,

How do I make another process inside my program so that the created processes can run concurrently with the main processes?
Ex. I have a program that prints helloworld every 5 seconds. At initialization helloworld launches a program called goodbyeworld with os.system("goodbyeworld.py"). Goodbyeworld prints "goodbyeworld" every 5 seconds. However when goodbyeworld is started, helloworld stops working.

If you're running some flavor of Unix or Linux, look up fork(). It's in the os module and is nearly identical to the C version. If you're running Windows, I'm not sure what the equivalent is, sorry.
