Weightless threads?


(Radu M. Obadã) #1

Sure; Squeak (Smalltalk) has very lightweight threads. People have had

upwards of 10000 threads with no problems.

It’s a very simple architecture: there is a queue of ready-to-run
processes at each priority level. And Semaphores keep lists of
waiting processes, as well.

There is just enough VM support to do the actual process switch.
Ok, so how can we use them in Ruby? Or aren’t them impelemnted yet?
