The AVar package

[Tags:bsd3, deprecated, library]

AVars emulate mutable variables, by providing a queue based interface to interacting with the variable. Each variable runs a handler function, which reads requests from a queue and processes them one by one. They can be used in concurrent systems safely, and should handle exceptions thrown by modifying functions gracefully.
