|Some applications require retrieving information from many sources, like files or remote network connections.
Using synchronous access, a regular script can only access one data source at a time. If a script needs to poll multiple sources, not only it may take a lot of time, but waiting from one source to respond may halt the script forever.
An alternative approach to retrieve data from many sources is to use asynchronous access to poll many sources at the same time. This way it does not block the applications from doing parallel processing while waiting for the data to come.
This package provides a solution that uses non-blocking streams to provide simultaneous access to multiple files or network connections for any PHP application.
