Altering your code to run as a standalone sample without needing access to a mail server and using threads (hence create rather than new) I get:

use warnings; use strict; use threads; use Thread::Queue; sub smtpblast{ my $mdq= shift; my $pending= $mdq->pending; while ($pending > 0){ my $md= $mdq->dequeue_nb; print "processing $md\n"; sleep $md; $pending= $mdq->pending; } my $threadid = threads->self; print "\n The process for thread $threadid is finished!\n"; } my $mdqueue=Thread::Queue->new(); $mdqueue->enqueue(10, 2, 5, 3, 7, 5); my $thr1=threads->create (\&smtpblast, $mdqueue); my $thr2=threads->create (\&smtpblast, $mdqueue); my $thr3=threads->create (\&smtpblast, $mdqueue); my $thr4=threads->create (\&smtpblast, $mdqueue); $thr1->join; print "\n Thread $thr1 joined! \n"; $thr2->join; print "\n Thread $thr2 joined! \n"; $thr3->join; print "\n Thread $thr3 joined! \n"; $thr4->join; print "\n Thread $thr4 joined! \n";

which prints:

processing 10 processing 2 processing 5 processing 3 processing 7 processing 5 The process for thread threads=SCALAR(0x3fdc57c) is finished! The process for thread threads=SCALAR(0x4508800) is finished! The process for thread threads=SCALAR(0x3ab0328) is finished! The process for thread threads=SCALAR(0x2534bbc) is finished!

and terminates as expected despite the errors.

Can you generate a similar sample the demonstrates the problem you are seeing?

  • 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:

  • 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).
