# -*- encoding: binary -*-

# Implements a worker thread pool model.  This is suited for platforms
# like Ruby 1.9, where the cost of dynamically spawning a new thread for
# every new client connection is higher than with the ThreadSpawn model,
# but the cost of an idle thread is low (e.g. NPTL under Linux).
#
# This model should provide a high level of compatibility with all Ruby
# implementations, and most libraries and applications.  Applications
# running under this model should be thread-safe but not necessarily
# reentrant.
#
# Applications using this model are required to be thread-safe.  Threads
# are never spawned dynamically under this model.
#
# If you're using green threads (MRI 1.8) and need to perform DNS lookups,
# consider using the "resolv-replace" library which replaces parts of the
# core Socket package with concurrent DNS lookup capabilities.
