Overview

Tealet

The tealet library is a C and assembler implemantation of stack slicing for various platforms. It has no external dependencies, apart from memcpy() from the C runtime, and even this function is most commonly inlined by the compilers.

(Debug builds will use assert() that do rely on other parts of the runtime.)

The library can thus be used to add stack slicing to any C application.

Tealet

This is the raw tealet project. It was originally extracted from the Greenlet project by Armin Rigo. Greenlet was in turn distilled from Stackless

Various platforms are supported. Full thread-safe switching is provided for some of them, but others only have Stackless-style switching, which means that they rely on global variables during stack slicing and therefore cannot be concurrently used on multiple threads in a single application.

PyTealet

This is a python module for Python 2.7 providing the tealet switching functionality. It is more primitive than the features provided by Greenlets and so an emulation module is also provided.
