There is a very preliminary interface to create parallel threads.
The interface is similar to the standard
where a thread is basically the same as a promise, except that
evaluation may be in parallel.
Creates a new thread that evaluates
(The result extends
forcefunction has generalized to also work on threads. If waits for the thread’s
expressionto finish executing, and returns the result.
Creates a new
Runnableinstance from a function. Useful for passing to Java code that expects a
Runnable. You can get the result (a value or a thrown exception) using the
Synchronize on the given
object. (This means getting an exclusive lock on the object, by acquiring its monitor.) Then execute the
forms while holding the lock. When the
forms finish (normally or abnormally by throwing an exception), the lock is released. Returns the result of the last
form. Equivalent to the Java
synchronizedstatement, except that it may return a result.
Suspends the current thread for the specified time. The
timecan be either a pure number (in secords), or a quantity whose unit is a time unit (such as
