    I am curious whether there is a plan to support AsyncFile on windows. Thanks.

    Windows asynchronous I/O interface is a bit complicated to have simple API like it is now in - it looks like file handles are to be created appropriately instead of wrapping given file handles. I will look into it when I have a Windows machine. I am hoping that someone may contribute a patch in the meantime.

    I have preliminary support for AsyncFile and AsyncPipe in Windows. If you are interested in trying it, please email me directly. Note that AsyncFile on its own is of little use in Windows (under Unix-like systems it can be used for sockets, but in Windows sockets don't work as files for async). I am wondering if you have any specific need for AsyncFile.
