In this talk we'll discuss how to write multithreaded programs in Perl. We'll begin with the basic threading model in Perl and how it differs from other popular thread systems such as pthreads and Java threads. We'll discuss how to create threads, how to share data between threads, and how to coordinate access to data using locks and semaphores. Finally we'll talk about how to use higher-level concepts such as queues and thread pools.
