setuid *within* Perl script

 setuid *within* Perl script

Is it possible for Perl to do a fork and then a setuid?  I want a section of
the code to run as another user, without having to make a separate script
(which wouldn't work anyway, since the target id would be dynamic).

Any ideas?  Perl 4.036 on NEXTSTEP 3.2.

Thanks.
