in thread Window + fork + Math::Pari = pain

I'm using the Math::Pari ppm but it's build process seems to only use the unix source

sub download_pari { my ($srcfile, $force) = (shift, shift); my $host = ''; my $dir = '/pub/pari/unix/'; my($ftp, $ua, $base_url); ...
There is a windows build at which may avoid the problem although I haven't yet tried to use it.

Thanks for your reply

    If the module isn't thread safe, a special windows build wouldn't avoid the problem.
      Some C libraries can be compiled to be threadsafe but are not by default, eg. SQLite. (I admit that's probably not the case here)
