+ <p>Perl has many approaches to achieving concurrent execution and parallel
+computing. These approaches work at different levels of data analysis ranging
+from splitting up jobs using Perl <a href="http://perldoc.perl.org/perlthrtut.html">threads</a>
+and <a href="http://perldoc.perl.org/perlfork.html">forks</a> to parallel computations
+using GPU and MPI modules and to harnessing Perl for Big Data tasks (for
+example Blekko&#8217;s <a href="http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/yapcna_2013.html">use of clusters</a>
+for crawling the Web).</p>

+software page under the &#8220;Parallel Computing&#8221; section.</p>
