The value-supply package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This library can be used to generate values (for example, new names) without the need to thread state. This means that functions that need to generate new values only need a supply object as an argument, and they do not need to return a new supply object as a result. This decreases the number of data-dependencies in a program, which makes it easier to exploit parallelism. The technique for generating new values is based on the paper ''On Generating Unique Names'' by Lennart Augustsson, Mikael Rittri, and Dan Synek.
