In what way does it fail to work?

Please reduce one of your scripts to a small, self-contained script that exhibits the problem.

How do you fill %Form?

I would double check that the name of the hidden field ("hiddenfield") is actually the same between the HTML page submitting to the script and the script.

Assuming a standard CGI setup, the following could work, if your scripts use CGI.pm (and if they don't, you should start rewriting them to use CGI).

#!perl -w use strict; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new(); print $q->header(); if ($q->param('hiddenfield') eq '') { print "<h1>Hidden field was not set</h1>"; } else { print "<h1>Hidden field was sent</h1>"; };

[marioroy]: The MCE::Hobo::Pool module will come later.
[Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
[marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
[Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
[Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
[marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
