alternative separate thread implementation of shared variables
DescriptionThe standard shared variable scheme used by Perl, is based on tie-ing the variable to some very special dark magic. This dark magic ensures that shared variables, which are copied just as any other variable when a thread is started, update values in all of the threads where they exist as soon as the value of a shared variable is changed. The Thread::Tie module is a proof-of-concept implementation of another approach to shared variables. Instead of having shared variables exist in all the threads from which they are accessible, shared variable exist as "normal", unshared variables in a separate thread. Only a tied object exists in each thread from which the shared variable is accessible. Through the use of a client-server model, any thread can fetch and/or update variables living in that thread. This client-server functionality is hidden under the hood of tie(). So you could say that one dark magic (the current shared variables implementation) is replaced by another dark magic. The Thread::Tie approach has the following advantages:

- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
