async: Run IO operations asynchronously and wait for their results

[ bsd3, concurrency, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a higher-level interface over threads, in which an Async a is a concurrent thread that will eventually deliver a value of type a. The package provides ways to create Async computations, wait for their results, and cancel them.

Using Async is safer than using threads in two ways:
