Asynchronous file and standard stream adaptation.

This module contains utility methods and adapter types for input/output to files or standard streams (Stdin, Stdout, Stderr), and filesystem manipulation, for use within (and only within) a Tokio runtime.

Tasks run by worker threads should not block, as this could delay servicing reactor events. Portable filesystem operations are blocking, however. This module offers adapters which use a blocking annotation to inform the runtime that a blocking operation is required. When necessary, this allows the runtime to convert the current thread from a worker to a backup thread, where blocking is acceptable.


Where possible, users should prefer the provided asynchronous-specific traits such as AsyncRead, or methods returning a Future or Poll type. Adaptions also extend to traits like std::io::Read where methods return std::io::Result. Be warned that these adapted methods may return std::io::ErrorKind::WouldBlock if a worker thread can not be converted to a backup thread immediately. See tokio-executor for more details of the threading model and blocking.
