Thank you so much for the detailed explanation. That really helps understand threads a lot more. I have been trying to implement it in my program and was getting a very strange result...when I directly run the perl file testThreads.pl from the command window...it runs fine.
But, when I call testThreads.pl from another file...from the command
Only one of the threads starts...and then it hangs and does not complete. Is this expected?
