Many-Core Engine (MCE) for Perl helps enable a new level of performance by
maximizing all available cores. MCE spawns a pool of workers and therefore
does not fork a new process per each element of data. Instead, MCE follows
a bank queuing model. Imagine the line being the data and bank-tellers the
parallel workers. MCE enhances that model by adding the ability to chunk
the next n elements from the input stream to the next available worker.
Input data is optional in MCE. Thus, input data is not required to run MCE.
Provides a hybrid queuing implementation for MCE supporting normal queues and
priority queues from a single module. MCE::Queue exchanges data via the core
engine to enable queueing to work for both children (spawned from fork) and
A parallel flow model for building creative applications. This makes use of
user_tasks in MCE. The author has full control when utilizing this model.
MCE::Flow is similar to MCE::Loop, but allows for multiple code blocks to
run in parallel with a slight change to syntax.
Provides a parallel step implementation utilizing MCE::Queue between user
tasks. MCE::Step is a spin off from MCE::Flow with a touch of MCE::Stream.
This model, introduced in 1.506, allows one to pass data from one sub-task
into the next transparently.
Provides an efficient parallel implementation for chaining multiple maps
and greps together through user_tasks and MCE::Queue. Like with MCE::Flow,
MCE::Stream can run multiple code blocks in parallel with a slight change
to syntax from MCE::Map and MCE::Grep.
