Re^3: Socket client thread design problemby BrowserUk (Pope)

I downloaded the C zip you linked only to find it only contains the same trivial, single-threaded examples you already posted (amongst lots of other unrelated examples). But no C code that uses 3 threads and shared sockets and queues and stuff to implement something you claim to be trying to emulate in Perl.
Nothing for me to use as a basis for producing a threaded Perl code to meet the sketchy and confused specs you outline in words.
So, then I start to think about the examples you have posted, and it is my conclusion that you are trying to use threads to mix together two different APIs either of which can serve the purpose on its own.
So, unless you can provide a reason for your 3 threads + queues design -- and the C code that implements it -- I can see no reason at all to try and create something that matches your earlier descriptions. Especially from scratch and without reference.
