that sounds great,

how do I get a handle to STDERR, Julian suggested print "$_" which output
the STDOUT from the commercial scanner. Am I on the right track?

memory? inoculate being updated and locking between mailscanner/inoculate
not working properly? try redirecting the child process' STDERR to
you can see? flush STDOUT before doing the open?
