in reply to glibc error in linux

Srinivas,

I couldn't help this post. I love Perl beyond words. That said, personally I stay away from using threads with Perl. I have always thought that there were too many caveats and the consequences of failure too severe. For me, fork and exec have always gained me the kinds of control and concurrency that I have looked for when scripting. This is no doubt heretical to some/many but that's how I use the language and I won't be changing. I am just too damn productive when I am not worrying if every level underneath me is thread-safe. I understand, BTW, that there are some other CPAN approaches beyond fork and exec and I have read very nice things about them; I have merely never had cause to investigate.

Regards,
welchavw

[haukex]: I think you're right, I think Pod::Simple is the preferred parser now
[haukex]: But I was just using it as an author test anyway
[Corion]: haukex: Aaah - I thought you were still running these tests on every machine, but you only run these as author or Devel::Cover tests
[Corion]: haukex: Yeah, I think back then I used Test::Inline, which used a pod parser that was going through some changes and I didn't want to cater for all the various versions and thus stopped testing the Pod completely
[choroba]: I usually do this with presentations
[Corion]: But now I think statically (re)generating the Pod tests is a saner approach, and likely I'll regenerate the tests either in Makefile.PL or from xt/ but have them live below t/
[choroba]: I keep the snippets in files of their own, and use a Makefile to syntax highlight them and insert them into slides, while also running them and inserting the output if required
[Corion]: choroba: Ooooh - I didn't think of that! I write my presentations as POD and if it "roughly" looks like Perl code, I should also syntax-check that...
[haukex]: Yes sorry I don't run them all the time, my POD tests are only run as author tests (and are excluded when I'm using Devel::Cover)
[Corion]: choroba: Hmm - no, I keep the snippets inline, but as my framework also has support for capturing output etc., maybe I should do the same...
