Description: Perl module to resynchronize multiple control flows
Async::Mergepoint is a module designed to provide a way to resynchronize
multiple parallel control flows. Often in program logic, multiple different
steps need to be taken that are independent of each other, but their total
result is needed before the next step can be taken. In synchronous code, the
usual approach is to do them sequentially.
An asynchronous or event-based program could do this, but if each step
involves some IO idle time, better overall performance can often be gained by
running the steps in parallel. A Async::MergePoint object can then be used to
wait for all of the steps to complete, before passing the combined result of
each step on to the next stage.
