  • async functions have @callback in their context, also aliased as @cb and @c. They also receive it as their first argument.

  • The @callback function receives the results as @results, also aliased to @res and @response and the error as @err, @e or @error. It also receives them as arguments: (err, res) ->.

  • Parallel
  • Map
  • @fn - receives an object of named functions.
  • @callback - (optional) the callback function.
