in thread using parallel processing to concatenate a string, where order of concatenation doesn't matter

You might want to have a look at POE about how "parallelizing" is done without threads, in a cooperative multitasking way. The POE kernel doesn't deal out time slices (thus virtually parallelizing in the way an operating system kernel does), but expects of it's programs (or "sessions") to behave nicely and give back control whenever appropriate.

[marioroy]: LA my @music_times = qx(find \$HOME/Music/ Albums -type f -iname \'*.mp3\' -exec mp3info -p \"%S\\n\" {} \\;);
[marioroy]: Only 2 backslash \\n
[marioroy]: LA no space before Albums
[Lady_Aleena]: Good guh! I think I will use File::Find when working in perl. That is too many toothpicks.
[marioroy]: mp3info must be in the PATH
[marioroy]: LA ++
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, this is forcing me to learn perl modules to use instead.
[marioroy]: qx isn't fun if having to backslash ' and " and \.
[marioroy]: LA ++ ok.
