Userspace cooperative threading library
libcommunism Documentation

This is the autogenerated documentation for the libcommunism library.

Introduction

libcommunism is intended to be a really, really fast, portable, and small implementation of cooperative multithreading in userspace.

License

The library is available under the terms of the ISC License.

Installation

The library is typically built as a static library, as there are C++ ABI instability problems with C++ shared libraries on many platforms. However, if you really want to build it as a shared library, set the BUILD_SHARED flag when compiling.

In all cases, the library is built using CMake. Built it as with any other project; i.e. to get started, from the root directory of the source, execute mkdir build && cmake .. for most UNIX-like platforms.

Porting

Supporting other architectures and platforms should be relatively trivial. See the amd64 port for an example of the required interaces.
