in reply to perl5 road map?

create 1000+ fast,light, reliable threads easily without any crash like erlang

Perl's been able to do that for years:

[16:20:43.22] C:\test>perl -mthreads=stack_size,4096 -mthreads::shared + -E"my $n:shared=0; async{{lock$n; ++$n;} sleep 1e3}->detach for 1..1e3 +; sleep 1 while threads::list > 1; say $n" 999 [16:20:44.72] C:\test>

(Let's see your Erlang one-liner to do that in 1.5 seconds?)

Of course, I cannot actually think of a valid use for it, but doing it is not a problem.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
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.

The start of some sanity?
