I get the same thing, but then, after checking
perldoc threads |ack async -C12
"async" creates a thread to execute the block immediately followin
it. This block is treated as an anonymous subroutine, and so must
have a semicolon after the closing brace. Like "threads->create()"
"async" returns a *threads* object.
Threads are executed in an "eval" context. This method will return
"undef" if the thread terminates *normally*. Otherwise, it returns
the value of $@ associated with the thread's execution status in i
eval? eval returns undef on failure, so I write
print timedCommand( 3, $cmd, $_ ) || "\$@ $@" for 2, 3, 4; ### LINE B
and I get
$ perl huh
