in reply to Split file into 4 smaller ones

May I recommend the Unix utility split (1)?

     split -- split a file into pieces

     split [-a suffix_length] [-b byte_count[k|m] | -l line_count -n
           chunk_count] [file [name]]

     The split utility reads the given file and breaks it up into files of
     1000 lines each.  If file is a single dash or absent, split reads from
     the standard input.  file itself is not altered.

     The options are as follows:


     -n      Split file into chunk_count smaller files.

Okay, maybe that was a bad suggestion. The GNU version does not have a split-to-n-chunks feature, it seems.

[Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
[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!
