Perl Threads

I'm new to threading in perl and I need some advice/help/sample code.
I basically want to loop for a while and spawn say 5 threads each
doing something. As a thread ends I want to check it's exit status
and spawn the thread again. Now I want to exit the loop after a
period of time but I also want the threads to finish completely before
exiting the loop. I've looked into some thread pool and queue stuff
but I'm still unsure as to what will suit my needs in this case.
Anybody got any ideas?
