in thread How to speed up my Html parsing program? (Concurrently run Subroutines?)
This page contains a list of links which then need to be retrieved by the get_page_html() method and there content passed to retrieve_info();
If the get_page_html() method retrieves pages over a network (rather than from disk), there is great potential for improving performance with forking or threads. In a single process/thread, network latency is additive. With multiple processes/threads, latency costs can run concurrently.
