NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Freenode::Threads - Interpreter-based threads are officially
       discouraged

DESCRIPTION

       Perl interpreter threads are officially discouraged. They were created to emulate "fork()"
       in Windows environments, and are not fast or lightweight as one may expect. Non-blocking
       code or I/O can be easily parallelized by using an event loop such as POE, IO::Async, or
       Mojo::IOLoop. Blocking code is usually better parallelized by forking, which on Unix-like
       systems is fast and efficient. Modules such as forks and Parallel::Prefork can make
       forking easier to work with, as well as forking modules for event loops such as
       POE::Wheel::Run, IO::Async::Process, or "subprocess" in Mojo::IOLoop.

AFFILIATION

       This policy is part of Perl::Critic::Freenode.

CONFIGURATION

       This policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
