I was thinking of a way to improve the speed of an e-mailing script where a bottleneck has arisen because of serial SMTP sending.
I'd like to "parallelize" the processing of the address array into 2-4 parallel processes, each sending via SMTP their parts of the array.
How would I split processing of the @email_addresses like this? create 2-4 sub-arrays? fork the sending once the sub-array's are populated?
Basically I set the e-mail message var's once (body, subject, from) and then do a foreach
loop on an array of e-mail addresses, sending the message sequentially.
Looking fwd to some Monk-wisdome
