in reply to Re^9: shared scalar freed early (work)
in thread shared scalar freed early

FYI, the worker threads in my script do a lot of work, but they also require a lot of data. It most definitely is faster using concurrency. I'd rather have a dozen cores being utilized than one. I don't think forks wouldn't allow me to write output to the same file in sequence without some kind of IPC which would probably slow things down, and sorting afterward would take too long.
