in thread Need help with Perl multi threading

I am able to run the scripts with Net:;OpenSSH module having the statements like threads->create()->join(). may be it is not a good idea but the script execution time drastically changed and my script is also working as I want.....

You are not listening. This

threads->create( \&someFunc, $arg1, $arg2 )->join()

Is exactly the same as:

someFunc( $arg1, $arg2 );

Except it takes LONGER!

Because it starts a whole new thread, and then waits for it to complete before looping around and doing the same again.

In other words. You are getting no benefit from the threading. (Though you would if you used threading correctly!)

If you are seeing a speed up, it is because you are now using a different SSH module which is better written and works properly. That's all.
