[ProgSoc] Perl Threads
I've run into a problem writing threads in perl 5.005_02.
I have a script which starts numerous threads, each starting up a system
program. These programs should complete very quickly, but if one of them
hangs, I need to be able to give up on it and kill it's thread.
The timing and things I can work out, but how do you explicitely kill a
thread? In java there's a straightforward 'destroy' method, which doesn't
seem to exist here.
