Just a simple idea for you...can you put a shared variable in each thread called $im_alive, and set it to 1 when the thread is launched, and have the thread set it to 0 just before it exits. Of course that requires you to track each thread (and it's associated shared variable) in a hash if you have more than one thread going. There also may be timing problems in checking the shared:var, you may need to allow time for the thread to initiate before checking it. I avoided this by setting the shared var to 1 outside of the thread.
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use threads; use threads::shared; my $im_alive : shared = 1; my $thread = async {sleep 10; print "Ok\n"; $im_alive = 0; }; my $i = 0; while (1) { $i++; print "$i - $thread\n"; print "im_alive->$im_alive\n"; if ($im_alive == 0) {last}; sleep 1; }; print "im_alive->$im_alive\n"; print "hit enter to exit\n"; <>;

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
