Module documentation for 0.3.3

This version can be pinned in stack with:parallel-io-0.3.3@sha256:d51f902591a4e5009785217e21b1a5650d3d80fb6dc52535eddf2270a2fdef55,3421

This package provides combinators for sequencing IO actions onto a thread pool. The thread pool is guaranteed to contain no more unblocked threads than a user-specified upper limit, thus minimizing contention.

Furthermore, the parallel combinators can be used reentrantly - your parallel actions can spawn more parallel actions - without violating this property of the thread pool.

The package is inspired by the thread http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.cafe/56499/focus=56521. Thanks to Neil Mitchell and Bulat Ziganshin for some of the code this package is based on.
