Descriptionprovides a sort of cooperative multitasking on a single thread (default version)
This package forms part of the Boost C++ Libraries collection.
Boost.Context is a foundational library that provides a sort of
cooperative multitasking on a single thread. By providing an
abstraction of the current execution state in the current thread,
including the stack (with local variables) and stack pointer, all
registers and CPU flags, and the instruction pointer, a fcontext_t
instance represents a specific point in the application's execution
path. This is useful for building higher-level abstractions, like
coroutines, cooperative threads (userland threads) or an equivalent
to C# keyword yield in C++.
This package is a dependency package, which depends on Debian's default
Boost version (currently 1.58).
