Good information, one nitpick.

As you say, Perl 6 uses continuations, and with continuations you can implement threading.

However the threading model that you get is a cooperative multi-tasking model in one process. Which means that you don't get the ability to keep running other threads when one thread does a blocking operation (like a long-running database call), and you again don't get the ability to ever take advantage of multiple CPUs.

But I know that elian is fully aware of both points, and would be astonished if he did not make the OS threading model available to Parrot in some fairly sane fashion.

Title:
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.
