Perl monitor

Could someone write me a perl script that would make sure my application is running, and if it quits, make it start again. Right now to start my application I use the following command: "screen ./gameserver +ip 192.168.1.1". I need a perl script to make sure it keeps running. And no, I can't edit the application (gameserver) to make it do something special.

Thanks.

why dont you try it yourself ? heres the basic idea

1.  put the output of  ps -aux | grep gameserver  into a variable.
 
ps -aux will list the running programd and grep will extract the line gameserver

so if gameserver is not running then the ouput will be empty

so you can have something like  

$output = `ps -aux | grep gameserver`;

2> next check if this line is empty  and if so run the command again by

`screen ./gameserver +ip 192.168.1.1`;


...........
there might be simpler solutions though
