Interestingly, I thinkl there is a cleaner way to do it. My experience of other programming languages is showing. The algorithm you have given is non-reentrant, hence non-threadsafe.

Instead, I prefer passing in a level number to recurse, which means that separate threads calling recurse will not interfere with one another.

#(1) sub recurse { #(2) my ($depth) = @_; print +(" .") x $depth . "current depth:$depth\n" ; recurse($depth + 1) if $depth < 3; print +(" .") x $depth . "current depth:$depth\n" ; } #(3) #(4) recurse(0); # (5)
I know perl is not thread safe, but perl 6 and/or perl 5.x might be.

My $0.02 --rW

Update: Gerbil is right. I don't need the extra braces. This is what comes with cutting and pasting someone else's example rather than rewriting from scratch.

Have edited the example to take on Gerbil's suggestions
