Package: wnpp Owner: gregor herrmann <gregoa@xxxxxxxxxx> Severity: wishlist X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, debian-perl@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx * Package name : libfuture-asyncawait-perl Version : 0.13 Upstream Author : Paul Evans <leonerd@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> * URL : https://metacpan.org/release/Future-AsyncAwait * License : Artistic or GPL-1+ Programming Lang: Perl Description : deferred subroutine syntax for futures Future::AsyncAwait provides syntax for deferring and resuming subroutines while waiting for Futures to complete. This syntax aims to make code that performs asynchronous operations using futures look neater and more expressive than simply using then chaining and other techniques on the futures themselves. It is also a similar syntax used by a number of other languages; notably C# 5, EcmaScript 6, Python 3, and lately even Rust is considering adding it. The new syntax takes the form of two new keywords, async and await. WARNING: The actual semantics in this module are in an early state of implementation. Some things will randomly break. While it seems stable enough for small-scale development and experimental testing, don't expect to be able to use this module reliably in production yet. The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group. -- Generated with the help of dpt-gen-itp(1) from pkg-perl-tools.
