  • A nice collection to add to my bookmarks, and serious food for thought. My only nit is the title of the last article: "threads" has come to mean many things, I think a better title might be "The Problem With Threads As Fibers", not the possibly implied "The Problem With Threaded Concurrency".

    I hope people take time to read the articles before just assuming they're another reason to dismiss/avoid Perl's threads. ithreads has its issues, but applying some of the techniques in Lee's article may mitigate the nondeterminism issues somewhat (as I've attempted w/ Thread::Apartment).

    • This issue with assumptions if why I removed as many as I could and came up with Process.pm :)

      I'm having fairly good success with it for things other than actual parallel processing (running different parts of a program across two different versions of Perl).

      I'm hoping it's going to be a slam dunk when the time comes to do some serious work with it.
