in reply to Learning the Deeper Secrets of Perl

Rather than focusing on learning obscure and possibly non-useful idiosyncracies of Perl, I would suggest you learn how to write better perl programs. Read "Perl Medic" by Peter Scott. It is a great book about how to write perl code that you won't be ashamed of in a couple of years. Books like Conway's OO Perl tend to be interesting but impractical. (Should you really do a bunch of obfuscated things to hide your object properties behind closures? Probably not.) I do like the discussion of references and objects in "Advanced Perl Programming" though, and the algorithms books is pretty solid, so those are both excellent choices.

[1nickt]: hippo no reason why not other than wanting to check an assumption :-)
[hippo]: For a self-contained application which can therefore ensure thread safety it seems like a sensible approach.
[choroba]: No, if there are no threads, then the user wants to use MCE. If there are threads, the user can choose.
[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
