Function futures_util::future::try_select

source ·
pub fn try_select<A, B>(future1: A, future2: B) -> TrySelect<A, B> 
where A: TryFuture + Unpin, B: TryFuture + Unpin,
Expand description

Waits for either one of two differently-typed futures to complete.

This function will return a new future which awaits for either one of both futures to complete. The returned future will finish with both the value resolved and a future representing the completion of the other work.

Note that this function consumes the receiving futures and returns a wrapped version of them.

Also note that if both this and the second future have the same success/error type you can use the Either::factor_first method to conveniently extract out the value at the end.
