Hardware, Embedded Systems I'm going to become short of suitable title suffixes pretty shortly... Anyhow, I have also reviewed interrupts on the MOS 6502 for the sake of extreme completeness, bust most importantly have tried to address some very incomplete and misleading statements of the interrupt handling model about pop-up threads and service-providing processes in a rather extensive way, see this post.

"Alright, so 'pure' async is about more than just nonblocking calls for the caller and an event queue for the handler."

That's if we take the concept to it's extreme conclusion, obviously we don't strictly have to. As with anything, there are tradeoffs.

It'd be nice if devs had more experience with async IO models. Many jump to the conclusion that they need MT since it's what they know (and sometimes all that's offered by their platforms - talking to you Java).

I guess we've taken this topic to it's conclusion.

A la prochain fois.
