This is a generic worker pool for the Go language. It's useful when you want to limit the number of goroutines running in parallel.


go install

Compile and run the examples:

go run examples/pool_example.go
go run examples/web_crawler.go

The last example is actually an exercise from the Go tour modified to use a worker pool for fetching and processing the URLs. The need to limit the number of concurrent requests in real web scraping scenarios was what prompted the creation of this package.
