perl-Coro - The only real threads in perl
|License:||GPL+ or Artistic|
|Vendor:||city-fan.org repo http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/|
This module collection manages continuations in general, most often in the form of cooperative threads (also called coros, or simply "coro" in the documentation). They are similar to kernel threads but don't (in general) run in parallel at the same time even on SMP machines. The specific flavor of thread offered by this module also guarantees you that it will not switch between threads unless necessary, at easily-identified points in your program, so locking and parallel access are rarely an issue, making thread programming much safer and easier than using other thread models.

by Paul Howarth (2018-12-17):
- Update to 6.54 - The autogenerated prototypes of Coro::AIO now add ";" at the end to avoid generating named unary operators and messing up parsing (mostly affects aio_mlockall 4 | 8, which was parsed as (aio_mlockall 4) | 8)
