Ruby fork from C program

As a learning exercise I’m goofing around with ruby’s fork within a C
program.

I’ve posted my current testing code here: http://pastie.org/591998

It seems to give me the output I was expecting however, it waits the
entire 10 seconds before it proceeds to the next fork call.

I thought maybe sleep is somehow blocking or there are likely other
things I don’t really understand.

Can anyone give me any ideas?

I’m using ruby 1.9.

The goal is to launch ruby processes from this C program.

Thanks for any help you might provide.

Can anyone provide any help on this little snippet? Maybe it’s just
wrong.
