Description:

I need to send a GET to a server, and while it is being processed I need to send another one.

If it's specifically about a "web" client (which you didn't require, but your example is one), use LWP::ParallelUserAgent.

you could use ParallelUserAgent. or you could try using threads.

an example using threads could be something like:

#!/usr/bin/perl use threads; my @urls = qw(http://www.perlmonks.org http://www.perlguru.org); foreach my $url (@urls) { my $thread = threads->new(\&getter, $url); $thread->detach; } sub getter { # well, here is supposed to be the get stuff #which would fetch a site + or whatever you'd like #to do. #} ## Code untested
