It can be clever to use Light Weigth Processes ( LWP ). LWP allow you to execute child processes in the same address space than their parents.
In order to make this, you have to use the clone() syscall.
This kind of processes can be called "Threads".
By the way, I don't know how perl implements neither the use of threads ( if it does ) nor the clone syscall.

I ask the monks : did perl allow multithreaded programmation ?

Update :

There is a module called "Thread" that provide you basis functions to implement a parallel processing and shared variables management ( Semaphores... ).
Main process share global vars with the childs. Each of it can thus freely store a report, and main thread can process it. You may also use signal IPC to inform main process of its child's state.

Hope this helps ( and I'm not too boring :)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
