NAME
     dispatch -- the dispatch framework

SYNOPSIS
     #include <dispatch/dispatch.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The dispatch framework allows blocks to be	scheduled for asynchronous and
     concurrent	execution via the core functions described in
     dispatch_async(3) and dispatch_apply(3).

     Dispatch queues are the basic units of organization of blocks. Several
     queues are	created	by default, and	applications may create	additional
     queues for	their own use. See dispatch_queue_create(3) for	more informa-
     tion.

     Dispatch groups allow applications	to track the progress of blocks	sub-
     mitted to queues and take action when the blocks complete.	See
     dispatch_group_create(3) for more information.

     The dispatch framework also provides functions to monitor underlying sys-
     tem events	and automatically submit event handler blocks to dispatch
     queues.
