  Description     : Perl extension for wait3 system call

If any child processes have exited, this call will "reap" the zombies
similar to the perl "wait" function.

By default, it will return immediately and if there are no dead children,
everything will be undefined. If you pass in a true argument, it will
block until a child exits (or it gets a signal).
