fork() replacement for perl < 5.6

To send an e-mailing list I use the fork() function in my perl program. Perl 5.6 also supports that for win32!!!!Smile

However, what can I do to make the code work for perl versions less then 5.6 running under win32?? I also need to be able to transfer some variables and data to the child process, either through a handle or a file... (fork() solves this problem.)
