Should WinRT async operation project to C++11 futures?


  • I heard that you can "project" WinRT objects differently into various languages... so that something that is really IAsyncOperation in the runtine appears as a promise in JavaScript and an awaitable type in C#. I also heard that C++11 has added futures and promises to the standard. So, at the risk of asking a dumb question because I'm very new to both of these things, I was wondering if it made sense to project to a C++ future (or promise... whichever makes more sense)?
