[concurrency-interest] applications of futures?
Tue, 29 Apr 2003 21:13:18 -0400
I've recently become interested in the idea of using futures +
asynchronous methods as a means of concurrent programming, and I'm
curious: how many of you on this list use futures in your applications
(or know of applications that use them)? For those that do, what are
applications and/or their characteristics? What do you see as the
benefits and limitations of futures?
Thanks in advance,
