This must be new code otherwise you wouldn't only now be discovering that threads::joinable isn't available.

So, why not install a new version in parallel and run your new code on that?

Your sample code does nothing useful, so I cannot safely advise how to re-write it so that you do not need joinable; but if your threads are not returning anything, why join them at all?

You could just detach them and let them go away naturally; but then you need to have a mechanism for deciding when your main thread can end.

Alternatively; why test for joinable? Most of the time you want to wait for them all to end; so a simple:

$_->join for @threads;

Is all that is required.

But again, given silly sample code, it is impossible to advise which strategy makes sense in your case.
