  • F# Future

    Similar to an async { } block but captures the result for future consumption. This structure can be very useful for performing multiple result-returning operations in parallel when the results aren't needed immediately. For example, performing several read/transform operations or pre-populating a cache with yet-to-be computed values. Microsoft's Task Parallel Library in .NET 4.0 includes a Future implementation so this version is only needed on earlier .NET versions. Comments, suggestions, and improvements are always welcome.
