in thread XML::Twig and threads [solved]

Also, threads don't make things faster ... they subdivide the computer's time; they don't multiply it.

Speaking anonymously does not make your "wisdom" any less wrong.

Threads allow you to use multiple processors concurrently. Thus, under the right circumstances, they multiply the amount of processing that can be done by a single process within a given unit of time.

Ie. For the right type of processing, the use of threads can "make things faster".

Bottom line: you're talking bollocks.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
