in reply to Reading Elements of an array in Parallel

Parallel::ForkManager looks like a good fit for what you want, it makes it easy to start a number of processes to work through a list.

use Parallel::ForkManager; $pm = Parallel::ForkManager->new($MAX_PROCESSES); foreach $data (@all_data) { # Forks and returns the pid for the child: my $pid = $pm->start and next; ... do some work with $data in the child process ... $pm->finish; # Terminates the child process }

    Parallel::ForkManager helps in case of process forking but I am not able to understand how will it help in reading all elements at once

      I'm not sure what you mean by "read all the elements at once" can you explain further?
