@musicmatze it was a must-have for my cloud-native routing application I wrote some months ago. Anything else would have made the code even more complicated and harder to maintain. I am still waiting for async closures to get to stable and after that, my project can finally be built with stable rust 🎉😊
I think this step is very important for network programming in rust. I can also see some benefits for general IO operations.
@fin_ger thanks for that explanation.
Maybe I just do not have the usecase for it.
@musicmatze You don't have to care about async. You'll come to it if and when you need it.
