in reply to Modifying an object in a fork

It's trivial using the mighty MCE::Shared by marioroy, two extra lines:

package MyClass { use Moose; has foo => ( is => 'rw', default => 'bar' ); }; package main { use strict; use warnings; use feature 'say'; use MCE::Shared; my $obj = MCE::Shared->share({ module => 'MyClass' }); say 'Before forking: ' . $obj->foo; my $pid = fork; if ( $pid == 0 ) { $obj->foo('baz'); exit; } else { waitpid $pid, 0; } say 'After forking: ' . $obj->foo; };
$ perl Before forking: bar After forking: baz
For details see the documentation on sharing objects between processes with MCE::Shared.

Hope this helps!

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    Hi 1nickt,

    It's trivial using the mighty MCE::Shared ...

    Also, see the logger and Tie::File MCE::Shared demonstrations. The object class, like in your demo, is constructed under the shared-manager process where it lives. How it works is that any interaction with the object is then possible via the OO interface only.

    Regards, Mario

    Thanks, hadn't heard of that module before.

    $PM = "Perl Monk's";
    $MCF = "Most Clueless Friar Abbot Bishop Pontiff Deacon Curate Priest";
    $nysus = $PM . ' ' . $MCF;
