in reply to How to use Threads

Your operating system is already multithreaded. Your task would be easier suited to using that than the in-language thread support:

opendir(DIR, $directoryLocation); my @files = grep(/\.html$/,readdir(DIR)); closedir(DIR); my @cmd = qw( start perl c:/html2wordxml.pl ); foreach my $file ( @files ) { system( @cmd => $file ); }

In other words, make a program that knows how to reformat a single file, and then call that program repeatedly without waiting for the last call to finish.

[james28909]: Good morning!
[james28909]: I have a problem I am trying to solve. I am packaging scripts using pdk and would like the verify the executable name each time it is executed
[Corion]: Hi James!
[james28909]: I looked through the docs, and see that PerlApp::exe() is suppose to return this information but whenever i try to use this, i get the error "Undefined subroutine &PerlApp::exe called"
[james28909]: i just want to verify the integrity of the executables name each time it is run.
[Corion]: Weird. this documentation says what you say.
[Corion]: I assume you are experiencing this with your packaged program. Maybe also include PerlApp.pm in the packaging list?
[james28909]: has anyone else run into this problem? i have tried searching but have not returned many results
[james28909]: ah, good idea.
[Corion]: What does print $PerlApp::VERSION output?
