Question run perl server on startup

dear all,
i hv programmed a webserver as a service in perl, and i wish to start it on linux startup. I added it in /etc/rc command like "perl /root/pws/ " |
as a result it runs as a service on startup. but system hangs on it as it starts for listening its own clients.
I could find a mthod how to run it in a separate process. or how to start in better way so that system would never hang.

Append an ampersand (&) to the end of the command to background it when the computer boots.
