This last SOTO re-reminded me of what an inveterate fan I am of Perl 6. Wow.
My question today is about concurrency. I can imagine how things like IPC Mailboxes (e.g. RFC 86) happen in modules. I can also imagine why Threads (e.g. RFC 1) should be in modules- given the obvious dependence on underlying OS. I do see both C<fork> and C<wait> in S29, but not in STD.pm, which brings me to the questions: * Where will C<fork>, C<wait>, and possible friends (e.g. Perl 5's C<open>-with-|) live? * Is there any expectation of message-passing concurrency functions living inside STD.pm? * How about shared/software-transactional memory? Hopefully I'm not inadvertently starting any kind of flame-fest about anyone's favorite concurrency model here :-D Best, David. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Never miss a thing.
