-Description: module providing asynchronous filehandle I/O
- IO::Async is a collection of Perl modules that allow programs to perform
- various operations on filehandles asynchronously.
+Description: modules for asynchronous event-driven programming
+ The IO::Async collection of modules allows programs to be written that
+ perform asynchronous filehandle IO operations.
- Typically, a program would use a main IO::Async::Loop which would contain the
- other objects that perform the actual I/O work required by the program. This
- versatile loop supports features like timers and signal handlers through its
- various included subclasses.
+ A typical program using them would consist of a single subclass of
+ IO::Async::Loop to act as a container of other objects, which perform the
+ actual IO work required by the program. As well as IO handles, the loop also
+ supports timers and signal handlers, and includes more higher-level
+ functionality built on top of these basic parts.
