Portable coroutine library
'libpcl' is a Portable Coroutine Library implementation written in ANSI C. Coroutines can be used to implement cooperative threading among many tasks without overloading the OS with threads/processes. Since context switch between coroutines is very fast, certain applications might have performance gain in using this type of threading. It can use either the ucontext.h functionalities ( getcontext()/makecontest()/swapcontext() ) or the standard longjmp()/setjmp().
