I believe that modern Linux and FreeBSD implementations use 32 bit ints for the pid_t. There will never be that many processes on a 32 bit OS, but since they just go forward until they wrap, getting a pid bigger than 16 bits is probably even to be expected. On Aug 6, 2014, at 11:43 AM,

This sounds like the right solution to me, Alex. Using @@ would be analogous to the C interface to system calls storing the error code in 'errno'. Rand On Feb 24, 2014, at 6:22 PM, Alexander Burger a...@software-lab.de wrote: Hi Konstantin, Right, the exit status is not stored anywhere

implement green threads, coroutines or continuations? Since that is read/write memory, the system won't purge it. It might be paged out (to swap), but would be transparently paged back in if/when used again. I'd never expect an OS to know that a region of memory is a stack. Rand

switch occurs, the switched to routine could find it's stack corrupted. And certainly operating system events could overwrite things deeper on the stack during a context switch. Rand On Mon, May 20, 2013 at 6:43 PM, Alexander Burger a...@software-lab.dewrote: Hi all, since nearly three years

Hi all, I think I have said this before, but I will repeat it. In my experience, a Wiki is only truly successful if there are very clear rules, styles, and usually someone with a heavy hand to enforce that. I think that the original author of picolisp may be concerned that he gives up the

Henrik, take a look at http://docs.python.org/library/asyncore.html There is even a few samples. I have used this extensively, reimplemented it directly in C a time or two. I think it would be relatively simple to implement using 'task' and '*Run'. Rand Henrik Sarvell wrote: Sounds
