Re: perlthread.pod -- First draft of thread docs
Message ID:
One comment--your documentation doesn't describe how perl objects can be
locked, nor how subroutines can be locked. In the old documentation, you could
separate locked functions from locked-functions-per-object. The latter is a
critical component for me (for a multi-thousand line program).

BTW, We (actually--Brian Mancuso, primarily), are working on a perl
threads/REGEXP fix and we've already developed a simple test. Brian reports
that perl REGEXP code is nasty stuff, or we'd be done by now.
