Hi Skeeve,

Update: Ah, the OP wants to read DATA independently. See tybalt89's solution.

Update: Currently, the following demo works on Unix platforms with IO::FDPass: automatically loaded by MCE::Shared if present in Perl. The next update to MCE::Shared on CPAN will support reading from the DATA handle without involving IO::FDPass and work on Windows including Cygwin.

MCE::Shared is not exclusive to only MCE parallel modules: e.g. MCE, MCE::Flow, MCE::Hobo, and etcetera. MCE::Shared also works with threads, even fork shown below, and other parallel modules found on metacpan.


use strict; use warnings; use MCE::Shared; mce_open my $shared_fh, '<', \*DATA; my $pid= fork(); die unless defined $pid; if ($pid == 0) { print "Start Child\n"; while (<$shared_fh>) { print "C: $_"; sleep 1; } print "Stop Child\n"; } else { print "Start Parent\n"; while (<$shared_fh>) { print "P: $_"; sleep 1; } print "Stop Parent\n"; } __DATA__ a b c d e f g h i j


Start Parent Start Child P: a C: b C: c P: d C: e P: f C: g P: h C: i P: j Stop Child Stop Parent

Regards, Mario

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
