Exactly. That is exactly what I was trying to do. I tried your script, and get the following error:

This Perl hasn't been configured and built properly for the threads mo +dule to work. (The 'useitthreads' configuration option hasn't been us +ed.) Having threads support requires all of Perl and all of the XS modules +in the Perl installation to be rebuit, it is not just a question of a +dding the threads module. (In other words, threaded and non-threaded +Perls are binary compatible.) If you want the use of the threads module, please contact the people w +ho built your Perl. Cannot continue, aborting. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/cygwin-multi +-64int/threads.pm line 28.
Any advice? Thanks.

    Yes. Install a newer version of perl that is configured and built with threads enabled. I would recommend that you get 5.8.4 or 5.8.5.
