Difference between std::thread and std::async RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Would liked to know the difference between std::thread and std::async?

    does std::async uses a new thread to complete the task?

    What is the limitation of std::async over std::thread?

    Under which scenarios std::thread can be used and not std::async
