Perl and threads
Did anybody have successful experience with subject on Linux
(Thread package, not ithreads) in case of strong conditions
(long running program with hundreds of threads) ?
Even if it was on single processor machine.
If you did - then can you tell me how to do it ?
I am trying to use latest stable 5.6.1 (got it yesterday from www.perl.com).
However there are lots of troubles:
Perl complains about failing of the thr5005 test (during make test),
random deadlocks appear during processing.
I know that threading is experimental in Perl.
And would ask - probably there is some trick(s) to make it working in the
stable way ?
Our team is going to develop script application server based on perl
and native threading support will be very helpful for us.
Tnanks, in advance.
