( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I haven't really had a good look at Perl6 yet so I don't want to make any comments as to how well it adresses threading.

I was commenting that it's not the threads-forks-clusters that make a difference, it's being able to hint to the compiler that some code *could* be parallelised, and having a language that provides some high-level constructs when I want to force something to be in a separate thread.

Programming thread pools and syncronisers and stuff feels very similar to programming low level functions in C - it focusses on what I want the computer to do, rather than telling it what I want to get. So I'm definately in the "future is parallel, but probably not threaded" camp.

Title:
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.
