A talk proposal:

* What is a deadlock
* Examples
* A formal modeling of the deadlock problem
* A formal solution for the deadlock problem
* issues
* discussion on how to implement deadlock detection in Perl in a transparent way for the Perl programmer

Anyone interested?
I can give this in the November meeting of israel.pm.

Additional suggestions:

* I also have thoughts about automatic race detection
techniques that can be incorporated into Perl in addition to
techniques for automatic deadlock detection. So this can
also be an interesting talk subject, though the theory there
will be heavier.

* Another possible talk subject is to discuss garbage
collection algorithms that can be applied to Perl in order
to replace its reference count algorithm.
