    do i have to be expert in perl , for testing or novice user knowledge is enough?

      You certainly don't have to be an expert in Perl, but you will need to (learn to) diagnose why the test suite of a distribution hangs on your machine, and how to blacklist those distributions.

      If you want to provide more help, you will have to have at least some knowledge about your platform, and about the likely expectations of the programmer that went wrong on your platform. To find these faulty assumptions, a bit of Perl knowledge is needed.

        thank you for your help

[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.
[marioroy]: I also have a Hobo driver for Forklift allowing folks to use in multiple classes, no conflicts with one another. That's not possible for P::FM.
[Discipulus]: congrats marioroy!
[marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
[Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
[Corion]: Oh, yes, programs could call wait $pid, but if your $pid is an object, then you could add a ->wait method to it and wait $pid would call that automatically "thanks" to indirect object notation
[marioroy]: Just documentation edits is all that remains. Hobo::Simple provides foreach and forseq with identifier capability -- all transparently supporting array, hash, file handle, and seq 1 .. N.
