If you only need to run your script on Linux/Unix systems, then, consider using processes (via fork) instead of threads.

    I enabled forks as follows by using system call to create a new terminal to run each ftp/sftp connection in a seperate perl script. It's able to execute but I am having issues when my parameters(@fields) contain bracket. I am not able to pass parameters which contains bracket.
    unless (fork()) { system("xterm -T $fields[0] -e \.\/uploader\.pl $index @field +s"); exit(0); }
    Error msg
    sh: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected
    After executing the window closes automaticaly. Is there a way to make it halt until the user press a key to exit or so. I tried to have a  <> at the end of the uploader script. But doesn't help
      Found a solution for the terminal to wait for user input from
      system("gnome-terminal -x bash -c './ $index @fields; read +-n1'");
      But still I am not sure on how to fix the bracket issue.
        The brackets are being intercepting by the shell. You have to properly quote shell metacharacters... actually, as there are two shells being invoked (the one used by perl to run your command and the one you are calling explicitly), you will have to double quote your arguments.

        If you want to follow that route and need help about quoting I advice you to post a new question.
