Linux – how to install parallel-forkmanager in perl

linuxparallel-processingperl

I am tiring to run multiple jobs in parallel by using perl script which use parallel:ForkManager.

#!/usr/bin/perl  -w

use Parallel::ForkManager;

my @make_obj = qw(
 mode1_testlist
 mode1_testlist1
 mode1_testlist2
);

my $fm = $pm = Parallel::ForkManager-> new(3);
foreach my $obj (@make_obj) {
  $fm->start and next;
  print("make regression MODE=1 MODELIST=$make_obj");
  $fm->finish();
}

but it throws me below error.

Can't locate Parallel/ForkManager.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at parallel_run.pl line 3.

Best Solution

Just use

cpan Parallel::ForkManager

Alternatively, execute the following command after making sure you have its dependencies (POSIX, Storable, File::Spec, File::Temp, File::Path 2.00 and Test::More 0.81_01) installed:

tar xvzf Parallel-ForkManager-1.03.tar.gz
cd Parallel-ForkManager-1.03
perl Makefile.PL && make test && make install
