in thread IPC::Open, Parallel::ForkManager, or Sockets::IO for parallelizing?

I'm willing to try making a bug report. Is there an alternate approach to raising a ticket, other than that link?

The self-censored comment: I ask because the link offered goes not to a web page or web site but a "web app", and a broken "web app" at that. After 10 minutes of faffing about with broken "web app", I was able to create an account and log in. However, after an additional 15 minutes I was not able to make any headway in actually getting a complete web form in order to report a bug let alone actually report a bug. I enjoy Perl a lot and am really grateful for all the knowledge here here but have zero tolerance for javascript, especially when it is abused to block what used to be a simple activity. :(

    "Is there an alternate approach to raising a ticket ..."

    Take a look at "How to use rt.cpan.org". It provides a variety of information including bug reporting; the email option may be more to your liking.

    There's links to other information which may help you with problems that you're experiencing. I've raised quite a few bug reports over the years but always used email; I can't provide any direct help with the "web app" you describe.

    RT certainly used to be fine with JS disabled. Perhaps there has been some change in that regard. Anyway, from the RT homepage:

    To submit a bug report for a given distribution by email, send mail to bug-<distribution-name>@rt.cpan.org, where "<distribution-name>" is something like DBIx-SearchBuilder or Class-DBI or Acme-Current-Forever. Use search to find name of a distribution.

    In this case the distribution name is ParallelUserAgent

    PS. The direct link to create a ticket for any dist is here.


    🦛

      To be clear, RT.cpan.org does not work with javascript fully enabled either.

      At scale, if there is a low threshold for reporting bugs then there will be bug reports and if there is a high threshold then there won't be bug reports. I'd like for there to be a relatively smooth and problem free path for bug reporting so that the project can survive.

      In this case the distribution name is ParallelUserAgent

      Thanks, though it may take some time to figure out the way through.
