Parallel execution framework?

Threaded View
I have some tasks that are best done in parallel (because they involve
a lot of waiting for the remote servers and networks).

For the last 7 years or so, I have been using
Parallel::ForkManager. It is nice because it is so simple, however, it
has its limitations.

I would like to see if there are any suggestions for a parallel
framework that stays within one perl machine, but uses multithreading.

By framework, I mean something that takes care of parallel stuff in
some straightforward way, kind of like Parallel::ForkManager.

All suggestions will be appreciated. Say, has anyone used Parallel::Loops?

Do you mean threading? Perl ithreads are best kept away from IME, though
I know there are people who've done useful things with them.

My first recommendation would be POE.
