spawn: Tiny library for concurrent computations

[ bsd3, concurrency, concurrent, control, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Spawn a concurrent IO computation and later demand its result. Tiny API and implementation.

New in version 0.3:

  • Added functions parMapIO, parMapIO_, and (|*|), which capture common use cases of spawn.

  • Updated code to avoid using deprecated functions with base-4.3 and later (GHC 7.0 and later). The old code is still used with older base libraries.

  • Added public GitHub repository.
