Raku provides a variety of mechanisms for graceful threaded processing. Queues are nice, handle all of the bookkeeping, and have a fair bit of overhead. Lazy gathers require a bit more planning but can be quite a bit faster with race() or hyper() to make them happen. This talk looks at examples of each, describing the syntax for using them and showing the performance tradeoffs and some ways to benchmark them in your own environment.

I've been working with Perl since the 1990's, using it for everything but salads -- texture isn't quite right. Most of my work with Perl has been with web back ends, financial data, bioinformatics, sysadmin/DBA utilities, ETL, automation, and occasionally flying a quad-copter.
