in thread Window + fork + Math::Pari = pain

I'm using the Math::Pari ppm but it's build process seems to only use the unix source PariBuild.pm
sub download_pari { my ($srcfile, $force) = (shift, shift); my $host = 'megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr'; my $dir = '/pub/pari/unix/'; my($ftp, $ua, $base_url); ...
There is a windows build at ftp://megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr/pub/pari/windows/ which may avoid the problem although I haven't yet tried to use it.

Thanks for your reply

    If the module isn't thread safe, a special windows build wouldn't avoid the problem.
      Some C libraries can be compiled to be threadsafe but are not by default, eg. SQLite. (I admit that's probably not the case here)

[hippo]: Why not?
[1nickt]: That's good! I suppose the cpanfile would be the same however the app distro is structured ...
[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.
