spawn (13 of 13 overloads)

(Deprecated: Use overloads with a completion token.) Start a new stackful coroutine that executes on a given execution context.

    typename Function,
    typename ExecutionContext>
void spawn(
    ExecutionContext & ctx,
    Function && function,
    const boost::coroutines::attributes & attributes = boost::coroutines::attributes(),
    typename constraint< is_convertible< ExecutionContext &, execution_context & >::value >::type  = 0);

This function is used to launch a new coroutine.



Identifies the execution context that will run the coroutine. The new coroutine is implicitly given its own strand within this execution context.


The coroutine function. The function must have the signature:

void function(yield_context yield);

Boost.Coroutine attributes used to customise the coroutine.
