The other two factory methods, Promise.in and Promise.at, create a promise, which will be kept after a given number of seconds or by a given time. For example:

my $p = Promise.in(3); 

for 1..5 {
Β Β Β  say $p.status;
Β Β Β  sleep 1;
}

The programme prints the following lines.

Planned 
Planned 
Planned 
Kept 
Kept 

That means that the promise was kept after three seconds.
