Hi gurus

Is there a way to run multiple SUB progrmans at the same time in one PERL script ? Or do I need to make multiple PERL scripts ?

So let's asume that I have program:


#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use Net::FTP;



I need to run those sub scripts at the same time and I don't want to PERL ends with the firs FTP before moving to second one.

Thanks for any advise

Using this module, you can write a loop like a "foreach" loop. But the good thing is that all the iterations of the loop happen parallely. You can also specify the parallelism you need.
