if i have a repository of data that i wrote a php script for that evaluates each file and writes the data to a database, is there a way to kick that off in the background so that the user can still interface with the page and the script just finishes whenever? i'm asking because the script can take awhile to execute. and if you're familiar with Unix, i'm looking for something in PHP synomymous with a Unix fork...

You could use AJAX to kick off another version of the script in the background.
