Async Javascript

Quote from site :

Async is a utility module which provides straight-forward, powerful functions for working with asynchronous JavaScript. Although originally designed for use with Node.js, it can also be used directly in the browser. Also supports component.
Async provides around 20 functions that include the usual 'functional' suspects (map, reduce, filter, each…) as well as some common patterns for asynchronous control flow (parallel, series, waterfall…). All these functions assume you follow the Node.js convention of providing a single callback as the last argument of your async function.

Quick Examples :['file1','file2','file3'], fs.stat, function(err, results){
    // results is now an array of stats for each file

async.filter(['file1','file2','file3'], fs.exists, function(results){
    // results now equals an array of the existing files

    function(){ ... },
    function(){ ... }
], callback);

    function(){ ... },
    function(){ ... }
