No, threads on Perl are different from threads in all other languages.
Unless you know the severe restrictions on threads (for starters, no
signals) you may think about using them. I decided against threads in all
programs I wrote when the question came up. Even started a thread about
it a while ago, which has lots of answers you never wanted to know, but
must know if you contemplate using threads.
