Re: Queuing system for running a perl program
in thread Queuing system for running a perl program
thanks to all for your time...Some clarifications:
1) No, the "Extra" software that is being executed, cannot be re-written in Perl, there are complex programs, can't touch them...
2)What I am thinking to do is have a random-string generator subroutine, so that the files generated for each user are separated from those of the others. Sound reasonable approach?
Is there somehow a way to say, have Perl tell me that "Now I started processing this ID" and then associate this unique ID to the current process and Perl tell me that "Now I finished with this ID"? In that scenario, I would know when each full-process has ended and re-direct the user to the output page... Maybe some kind of intermediate "Your query is being processed page" could be helpful? In that case, is this done by PHP, Perl, Javacript?
