Manifesto

Make a supply of the results of Promises

Build Status

Synopsis

A different version of the old 'sleep sort'

use Manifesto;

my $manifesto = Manifesto.new;

for (^10).pick(*).map( -> $i { Promise.in($i + 0.5).then({ $i })}) -> $p {
    $manifesto.add-promise($p);
}

my $channel = Channel.new;

react {
    whenever $manifesto -> $v {
        $channel.send: $v;
    }
    whenever $manifesto.empty {
        $channel.close;
        done;
    }
}

say $channel.list;

Description

This manages a collection of Promise objects and provides a Supply of the result of the kept Promises.

This is useful to aggregate a number of Promises to a single stream of results, which may then be used in, a react or supply block or otherwise tapped.

Installation

Assuming you have a working installation of Rakudo perl 6 installed with either zef or panda you should be able to do either:

zef install Manifesto

or

panda install Manifesto

Other equally capable installers may become available in the future.

Support

This is so simple I'm not sure there is much scope for many bugs, but if you have any questions, suggestions, patches or whatever please send them via GitHub
