Suppose I have a number of tasks in one application which may finish in any order. And I need to run some code when all of the tasks have finished. If that matters, the application is running under AnyEvent, but without Coro.
To some extent, AnyEvent's $cv->begin/$cv->end allow what I want. However, I'd like to have more fine-grained control. For instance, I'd like to be unable to "finish" a task twice. Ability to gather data from all tasks would also be nice.
Of course, this can be done. Set up lots of callbacks that share a hash; delete keys from that hash whenever a task finishes; call the megacallback when the hash is empty. I wonder if there's a more civilized way of doing it, maybe some CPAN module?
