Protothreads Library 1.3 Released

Protothreads are an
extremely lightweight, stackless, thread-like programming abstraction
designed for severely memory constrained embedded systems that may
have as little as a few hundred bytes of RAM. Protothreads are
designed to replace event-driven C code with sequential programming
but without the memory overhead of full multithreading – a protothread
requires only two bytes of RAM. Protothreads are implemented in ANSI
C, does not require any machine code, and is therefore highly
portable. Version 1.3 adds the possibility to determine if a
protothread is blocked, has yielded or has ended, and can be
downloaded here. Also be
sure to read how
protothreads work, under the hood
