  • Yes. Immediately abandon the fantasy of getting 5.6.1 threads stable anywhere. Perl's threading support isn't even close to stable until 5.8.0, and even then there are a few problems left to deal with. I wrote an article about threading in Perl [perl.com] that you might find useful.

    As for the problems you're having with HTTP::Daemon... Have you considered posting this as a question on PerlMonks [perlmonks.org]? If there's a better answer out there, surely the monks know it.

  • 5005 threads and ithreads in 5.6 are just broken, to get atleast working threads you need 5.8 with ithreads. I would bet that most win32 6.8 users have ithread enable, the default makefile enables them, and so does ActiveState to allow for psuedo-fork to work.
