I would like to point you to a google groups message but apparently the parrot-porters alias to perl6.internals is not getting archived. In any case, Allison just posted the following to the list:

I've finished a first pass through PDD 25 on threading/concurrency. It's largely a collection of prior thinking on the subject. Before I start kicking it into a more structured form, I'd like to do an initial round of discussion. This is your chance to mention anything you hoped or expected from Parrot's concurrency models. How do you plan to use concurrency, and in what contexts? What's your favorite concurrency model and why should we consider using it? How integral a role should the new STM play in Parrot's concurrency? Etc.

I've changed the name of the PDD from "Threads" to "Concurrency" because: a) the notion of "threads" seems to have taken on mythical proportions, so this is a symbolic step toward practicality, and b) Parrot has more than one concurrency model, and this PDD will be the overview of all them, plus the ways the various models interact.

I intend to point her to this thread in case she does not already know about it.

Cheers - L~R

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.
