Dear Perl Monks,

hopefully i am not too keen, if i ask bluntly and stupidly: How is concurrency and the execution of perl programms through perl supported....

No, crap, let's start again: with some background on my real problem...:

I have existing perl programms, which i want to automate (execute) thorugh a perl programm. Since the existing perl programms have very different requirements in terms of execution time and frequency, the executing perl programm must expect a high degree of concurrency. I can't use for instance cron, because the sheduling is done in a different system. Also if i just execute the perl programms through the sheduling system, i have a scalabilty problem ... like the cgi problem with httpd, addressed with mod_perl.

What are the options? How well is mulithreading supported? Fork versus system, is eval feasible for execution whole perl programms? Etc.?

I am aware, that this potentially a "big" and many questions, there fore i appreciate any hints, links to existing/similiar solutions.

Humble seeker of Perl wisdom

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
