I'd be fascinated to know how to share globs between Perl threads.

Supersearch for a thread by me with a title including "threads" and "globs" for my initial experiments in doing this. Basically, you need to pass a "handle" to a glob through a shared variable in such a way that threads::shared doesn't stick it's nose in and reject you. Be warned: The technique I used there has problems.

I've a couple of other ways of doing it that I am experimenting with, but I would rather keep them quiet till I've proven to myself that they can be used reliably.

Perl threads have an undeservedly bad rep as it is, without me causing more problems sharing speculative ideas without checking them out first. (Which is why I'm not linking to the post in question--If you want to try it, your gonna have to do a little work:)

Examine what is said, not who speaks.
Silence betokens consent.
Love the truth but pardon error.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
