NAME ^

Proc::Forkmap - map with forking and IPC

SYNOPSIS ^

EXAMPLES:

    sub foo {
        my ($x,$n) = (shift,1);
        $n *= $_ for (@$x);
        say $n;
    }
    
    @x = ([1..99],[100..199],[200..299]);
    my $p = Proc::Forkmap->new;
    $p->fmap(\&foo,@x);
    
    or,
    
    package Foo;
    
    sub new { return bless {}, shift};
    sub bar { #do heavy calc stuff and max a CPU };
    
    package main;
    
    my $foo = Foo->new;
    my @rs = Proc::Forkmap->new(max_kids => 4, ipc=> 1)->fmap(
        sub { $foo->bar(@_) }, @x,
    );
    
    or,
    
    my @rs = $p->fmap(sub { $_[0] ** $_[0] }, @x);
    
    or,
    
    #get stuff from the intertubes
    
    sub bar {
       my $t = shift;
       my $s = Stock::Price->new;
       ... get historical stock prices ...
       ... do some analysis ...
       baz($t,$sell_price);
    }
    
    #then save stuff to a data store
    
    sub baz {
       my ($t,$price) = @_;
       my $conn = MongoDB::Connection->new;
       my $bayes = $conn->stock->bayes;
       $bayes->insert({symbol => $t, price => $price});
       $conn->disconnect;
    }
    
    my $p = Proc::Forkmap->new(max_kids => 4);
    $p->fmap(\&bar,qw/rht goog ^ixic ^dji yhoo aapl/);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module supplies an easy to use map method that provides built-in forking and IPC.

METHODS ^

new

    my $p = Proc::Forkmap->new(max_kids => 4, ipc => 1);
max_kids

Maximum number of kids allowed in the pool. The default is 2.

ipc

Set IPC on (blocking)/off state. IPC is off by default.

icp

    $p->ipc(1)

Turn on/off inter-process communication.

max_kids

    $p->max_kids(4);

max_kids setter/getter.

fmap

    my @rs = $p->fmap(\&foo,@x);

This method takes a coderef and an array. If IPC is turned on, it will return, via IO::Pipe, a result set. Otherwise, it will continue on its merry way until either an error occurs that prevents a fork or all the subprocesses complete their tasks.

SEE ALSO ^

Proc::Fork, IO::Pipe
