Supposed to mimics and enhance proposed C++ "future" features http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/future
|Latest on Hackage:||2.0.0|
This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
Similar to "futures" in C++ (with support for cotinuations). This differs from IVars in that the value is from an action in a spawned thread, and exceptions are caught and returned.
