Stackless Code - The Short Version

So my last couple of posts have been on installing Stackless Python and what exactly the Stackless bit of Stackless Python means. Now it's time for the short version of the example code and an alternate explanation of continuations. Prepare to be underawed.

With Stackless ou get tasklets and channels. Channels let you communicate between tasklets.

Running this you get:

Now the third and final thing that Stackless offers is cooperative multitasking. To see how this works, just uncomment the line with stackless.schedule() in it and rune it again.

That's about it really, but as you know it's not what you got it's how you use it. There's a much more detailed explanation of what we just did here and the point is that this allows you to use continuations.

See my next post An Alternate Explanation of Continuations

Good luck fellow travellers.
