Perl extension of scoreboard for monitoring status of many workers

ParallelScoreboard is a pure-perl implementation of a process scoreboard. By using the module it is easy to create a monitor for many worker process, like the status module of the Apache HTTP server.

Unlike other similar modules, ParallelScoreboard is easy to use and has no limitation on the format or the length of the statuses to be stored. Any arbitrary data like JSON or frozen perl object can be saved by the worker processes as their status and read from the manager process.
