in reply to How does AnyEvent work?

AnyEvent is like NodeJS. Actually more appropriate, NodeJS is more like AnyEvent, as NodeJS is based on libuv, which I think is a fork of libev, the OG backend event loop for AnyEvent.

Just as NodeJS, CPU bound operations block the rest, so you have to transfer them out of process.

    I see.So how do you do that with Perl/AnyEvent?

      In general, you run a second process and send it commands to perform.

      See for example AnyEvent::Run, AnyEvent::Fork or any of the RPC modules.
