Here shortly I'm going to be recompiling the Perl binary that we currently use on a number of Solaris systems. It's Perl 5.83 and not compiled with threading due to some rumored stability issues with threadings.
I'm curious on what the monk community's thought is on Perl's threading stability. Is it worth getting into now?
I'm currently incharge of an application that relies on forking for speed, but lacks the maintaining of state due to the nature of forking. I've been thinking of moving into Perl threadings, but fear of possible stability problems (one co-worker spoke of how her herd that threaded Perl causes issues with other things non-thread related).
What are your thoughts and experiences with Perl threading?
