The parallel-io package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

This package provides combinators for sequencing IO actions onto a thread pool. The thread pool is guaranteed to contain a fixed number of unblocked threads, minimizing contention. Furthermore, the parallel combinators can be used re-entrently - your parallel actions can spawn more parallel actions - without violating this property.

The package is heavily inspired by the thread Thanks to Neil Mitchell and Bulat Ziganshin for the code this package is based on.
