[back to package description]


This library is about to implement the actor model on top of the GHC's concurrency. Actors works as VM's lightweight threads and messages works with STM's channels.


The Control.Concurrent.Actor module provides the API that mimics Erlang's concurrency primitives. See the haddocks for more details.


  • Implement the flush funtion (to show already received messages)?

  • Write more examples.
