in reply to Question about Parallel::ForkManager

There are 1+@urls copies of @ar. You want to change @ar in the parent, which isn't something the children can do directly. The easiest wat is to use the mechanism described in the "RETRIEVING DATASTRUCTURES from child processes" section of the documentation.

    So there is no way to avoid disk memory usage?
    It's not good in terms of performance. But also since I may have many calls from clients on the server will not they race for the same tmp file?
    Also, say if the process is interrupted by some reason in the middle the tmp file will never be removed.

      I didn't realized it used the disk. Pipes could be used, so I'm curious why it uses the disk. (Ah yes, using pipes would prevent the parent from doing other work while the children are running. This is usually not a problem, but it would break P::FM's interface to support this.)

      There won't be a race condition. It surely defends against that using the process id in the file name.

        Maybe I can do something simple with "fork" and pipes? If you have a solution could you give it to me.
