Asynchronous I/O that doesn’t get in your way, written in D

Function async

Starts an asynchronous computation and returns a future for the result value.

Future!(ReturnType!CALLABLE) async(CALLABLE, ARGS...) (
  CALLABLE callable,
  ARGS args
if (is(typeof(callable(args)) == ReturnType!CALLABLE));

If the supplied callable and arguments are all weakly isolated, runWorkerTask will be used to perform the computation in a separate worker thread. Otherwise, runTask will be used and the result is computed within a separate task within the calling thread.


callable A callable value, can be either a function, a delegate, or a user defined type that defines an opCall.
args Arguments to pass to the callable.


Returns a Future object that can be used to access the result.
