MCE::Channel::Threads - Channel for producer(s) and many consumers
This document describes MCE::Channel::Threads version 1.866
A channel class providing queue-like and two-way communication for threads only. Locking is handled using threads::shared.
The API is described in MCE::Channel.
use MCE::Channel; # The default is tuned for one producer and many consumers. my $chnl_a = MCE::Channel->new( impl => 'Threads' ); # Specify the 'mp' option for safe use by two or more producers # sending or recieving on the left side of the channel (i.e. # ->enqueue/->send or ->recv2/->recv2_nb). my $chnl_b = MCE::Channel->new( impl => 'Threads', mp => 1 );
The t/04_channel_threads tests are disabled on Unix platforms for Perl less than 5.10.1. Basically, the MCE::Channel::Threads implementation is not supported on older Perls unless the OS vendor applied upstream patches (i.e. works on RedHat/CentOS 5.x running Perl 5.8.x).
