Yes, from your description you seem to be trying to shoehorn a sequential program into an event loop. AnyEvent (or POE, or IO::Async, or whatever) is not a hammer for every nail, it is not always appropriate, but I'm not certain I'd recommend threads either, perhaps a combination of fork and some form of IPC (using one of the fine modules on CPAN, such as Parallel::ForkManager) might be better. It would definitely make good use of your pre-emptive, multi-tasking operating system.
