Queue to the Future!

An easy way to create asynchronous execution paths in an unobtrusive way. Queue to the Future uses a managed pool of workers to keep overhead to a minimum.

Synopsis

require "queue_to_the_future"

# returns immediately
result = Future("list", "of", "args") do |*args|
  sleep(1)
  args.join(" ")
end

# blocks until completed
puts result                    #=> "list of args"
