in reply to Parrot, threads & fears for the future.

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

    Unfortunately, it hasn't shown up here yet either,

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
      Apparently it doesn't go there until after it has been hashed out. I really don't follow Parrot development that closely these days. In any case, you can find it here.

        not precisely. since the name of the document has recently been changed (s/threads/concurrency/,) the website link has not been updated. i've entered a ticket for this, and it should be fixed shortly. i'll update this thread when that occurs.
