This package contains the documentation about using the μC++ compiler
from the University of Waterloo.
μC++ is a dialect of C++, extending C++ with new constructs that
provide advanced control-flow including light-weight concurrency on
shared-memory uni- and multi-processor computers running UNIX and Linux
operating systems. μC++ provides new kinds of classes, including
coroutines, which have independent execution states; tasks, which have
their own threads; and monitors, which allow for safe communication
among tasks. These new classes can take part in inheritance,
overloading, and templates, just like other classes. As well, C++
exception handling is extended, allowing exceptions to propagate among
coroutines and tasks. Additional capabilities include: clustering of
tasks and processors, object-oriented non-blocking I/O for files and
sockets, and support for real-time programming.
