This module contains combinators for futures. The
when_* functions allow you
to turn multiple futures into a single future which is ready when all, any,
some, or each of the given futures are ready. The
wait_* combinators are
equivalent to the
when_* functions except that they do not return a future.
Those wait for all futures to become ready before returning to the user. Note
wait_* functions will rethrow one of the exceptions from
wait_*_nothrow combinators are equivalent to the
exception that they do not throw if one of the futures has become exceptional.
split_future combinator takes a single future of a container (e.g.
tuple) and turns it into a container of futures.
See lcos_local, synchronization, and async for other synchronization facilities.
See the API reference of this module for more details.
