The Workflow package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

Transparent support for interruptable computations. A workflow can be seen as a persistent thread that executes any monadic computation. Therefore, it can be used in very time consuming computations such are CPU intensive calculations or procedures that are most of the time waiting for the action of a process or an user, that are prone to comunication failures, timeouts or shutdowns.

The computantion can be restarted at the interrupted point because such monad is encapsulated inside a state monad transformer that transparently checkpoint the computation state. Besides that, the package also provides other services associated to workflows The main features are:
