in thread Thread::Apartment, how do I use main:: subs?

My app is running at 400MB right now and it hardly does more than load.

I found the same thing when I played with T::A a year or two ago. Huge memory usage and glacial speed for relatively little gain.

In my experience, nearly everything you want to do with threads is easier, lighter and faster using threads directly. So long as you're not wedded to everything being OO, there is rarely a genuine need to pass complex objects around between threads.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
