Perl::Critic::Policy::Community::Threads - Interpreter-based threads are officially discouraged
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.
This policy is part of Perl::Critic::Community.
This policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
