A futures implementation that integrates with shelly
jobs 5 (\job -> background job (sleep 2) >> background job (sleep 1))
jobs will wait for all concurrent jobs to finish.
The argument to jobs is the maximum number of concurrent tasks.
Generally shell scripts contain a lot of quick commands, but when you have the occasional command that is noticeably long and independent of other commands, you can easily run it concurrently.
Running external commands asynchronously.
BgJobManager that has a
limit on the max number of background tasks.
an invocation of jobs is independent of any others, and not tied to the ShIO monad in any way.
This blocks the execution of the program until all
background jobs are finished.
Returns the promised result from a backgrounded task. Blocks until the task completes.
