in reply to IO::Socket::INET in worker threads

I agree with BrowserUK, that it would be nice to have more details.
Nevertheless I guess you need to try a non-blocking read from Thread::Queue via the dequeue_nb function.
For non-blocking receive from sockets you may look at recv in socket programming.

    Thanks guys, sorry for not providing enough info, i'm not a networking expert so choosing the right words is difficult.

    weismat, I can maybe ask a better question following your advice.

    How can I implement a non-blocking receive from sockets with threads?

    Also I'm now looking into how I can use select for the same purpose.
