Perl framework implementing coroutines


Coro is a collection of modules which manages continuations in general, most often in the form of cooperative threads (also called coros, or simply "coro" in the documentation). They do not actually execute at the same time, even on machines with multiple processors.

The specific flavor of thread offered by this module also guarantees you that it will not switch between threads unless necessary. It switches at easily- identified points in your program, so locking and parallel access are rarely an issue, making threaded programming much safer and easier than using other threading models.

Coro provides a full shared address space, which makes communication between threads very easy. A parallel matrix multiplication benchmark runs over 300 times faster on a single core than perl's ithreads on a quad core using all four cores.

This version of Coro has been patched by the Debian Project to provide compatibility with Perl 5.22 and Perl 5.24. Please send bug reports to Debian (<>) and not the original author.
