Poorman's Implementation of Multi-Processing

Ages ago I wrote a small little program pimp.pl (Poorman's Implementation of Multi-Processing). Stupid little thing, it allowed me to run multiple programs on multiple computers at the same time. It was a improvement of a program that was written by myself and loads of help from my CS roommate while I was at Berkeley. When I added some improvements, I also added a queue system and came up with pimp-queue.pl. Now I could run using more commands than available computers and the remaining commands would just queue up.
