in reply to Use more than one threads for one file processing
If you want my honest opinion, I think the work of bioinformaticians is important, especially if it has anything remotely to do with curing some disease that my shorten MY life.
So, I recommend that you go to your boss and tell him you either need a faster computer OR you need yet another computer.
I think it is a waste of your precious time to be learning how to coax Perl to use multiple threads. Your time is better spent on doing what you do best: bioinformatics.
Oh, and keep us informed.
