namespace hpx


template<typename F, typename ...Ts>
decltype(auto) dataflow(F &&f, Ts&&... ts)#

The function template dataflow runs the function f asynchronously (potentially in a separate thread which might be a part of a thread pool) and returns a hpx::future that will eventually hold the result of that function call. Its behavior is similar to hpx::async with the exception that if one of the arguments is a future, then hpx::dataflow will wait for the future to be ready to launch the thread. Hence, the operation is delayed until all the arguments are ready.
