Abstract

Demonstrates why the changes described in the stackless PEP are desirable. A low-level continuations module exists. With it, coroutines and generators and "green" threads can be written. A higher level module that makes coroutines and generators easy to create is desirable (and being worked on). The focus of this PEP is on showing how coroutines, generators, and green threads can simplify common programming problems.
