[Bioperl-l] [StandAloneBLAST] Use more than one CPU + avoid BLAST reload

I just started working with Perl and BioPerl. I'm quite impressed what
can be easily done with this module. Today I found that my second CPU
ist not used, but the first one run's at 100%. I tried to include the
"-a"-parameter, but I was not successful:
my @params = (
-database => 'my_db',
-a => '2',
-outfile => 'blast1.out'
How do I have to use it?
Second question: In my perlscript I start BLAST-searches in a loop.
Everytime BLAST has finished its search, the memory is cleared and BLAST
is started again. I think most of the time is used to reload the
database. Is it somehow possible to keep the database loaded (e.g. by
starting a second search) or is BLAST reloaded anyway?
Thanks for your help!
