Descriptionprovides a sort of cooperative multitasking on a single thread
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
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.
