Process Management Modules in Perl

Brett Estrade gave a solid overview of process management in Perl.

He started with some definitions and specified that he would not cover much about IPC, general asynchronous work, and ithreads.

Brett spent a bit of time with process management in bash. This established a baseline of potential easy functionality. The he moved on to the basics in Perl.

The presentaion finished up with an introduction to Parallel:ForkManager, Parallel::ForkManager::Segmented, and MCE.

The group had a quite a few questions and comments. It made for a lively discussion as part of the presentation.

George Baugh followed up with some examples working around the Playwright tool.

The presentation is available.

We had 12 people attending the remote meeting on Zoom this month.
