Re: Sharing data structures among http processes?
in thread Sharing data structures among http processes?
Thanks tomhukins, this looks to be what is needed. And your explanation of copy on write memory sheds light on why I was experiencing the unsharing of memory.
I do have another related question: are there any methods for sharing a process (or a Perl object) among processes? For example, I want one shared object to update the data structure, to ensure integrity and to write the changes back to the persistent storage. Or is there a better method for handling this than one shared object attempting to service many requests?
