There's more than one way to do things

It would be interesting to see how the various options stack up against each other, but they would all ned to be run from the same place to get anything like a reasonable comparison.

From where I am, it makes little or no difference to the total time whether I do all 10 in parallel or serially. The bottleneck is entirely the narrowness of my 40K pipe. YMMV.

To that end, here's a threaded solution:

#! perl -slw use strict; use threads; use Thread::Queue; use LWP::Simple; use Time::HiRes qw[ time ]; $|=1; our $THREADS ||= 3; our $PATH ||= 'tmp/'; sub fetch { my $Q = shift; while( $Q->pending ) { my $url = $Q->dequeue; my $start = time; warn "$url : " . getstore( "http://$url/", "$PATH$url.htm" ) . "\t" .( time() - $start ) . $/; } } my $start = time; my $Q = new Thread::Queue; $Q->enqueue( map{ chomp; $_ } <DATA> ); my @threads = map{ threads->new( \&fetch, $Q ) } 1 .. $THREADS; $_->join for @threads; print 'Done in: ', time - $start, ' seconds.'; __DATA__

Examine what is said, not who speaks.
Silence betokens consent.
Love the truth but pardon error.

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.
