The quest for mulithreaded Perl

shirkdog_perl has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings Monks, As I have just reinstalled slackware on my laptop, I start out with Perl 5.6.1. I have read that Perl 5.8.0 has better threading support even over 5.6.1. I have searched nodes for threading and found a node from 2000 that says "DON'T DO THREADS in perl." This is more of a general question to all of you to get an idea of who has successfully used threads in perl. In the evil world of java, threading is simple, such as a clock applet I created.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I've used Threads in Perl, and I'm still using that App. :)
    (It's using 5.005 threads in 5.6.1 though, I've not got around to converting to the new ithreads yet, it looks like that could be difficult.)

    here is a link to a tutorial using ithreads. Seems simple enough :)
