Descriptionprovides a sort of cooperative multitasking on a single thread (default version)
This package forms part of the Boost C++ Libraries collection.
Boost.Coroutine provides templates for generalized subroutines which
allow multiple entry points for suspending and resuming execution at
certain locations. It preserves the local state of execution and
allows re-entering subroutines more than once (useful if state must
be kept across function calls).
Coroutines can be viewed as a language-level construct providing a
special kind of control flow.
In contrast to threads, which are pre-emptive, coroutine switches are
cooperative (programmer controls when a switch will happen). The
kernel is not involved in the coroutine switches.
The implementation uses Boost.Context for context switching.
This package is a dependency package, which depends on Debian's default
Boost version (currently 1.58).
