> When last I wrote about COROS I explored the EVQ component of it with a focus on the API and some of its underlying construction. In this post I will expand on that underlying construction giving reasons for some of the design decisions, as well as providing some example use cases for this.
Software has a problem.
OK, it has many problems. I've already highlighted one of them. But this is another important one.
The problem is that software—all software, with no exceptions—sucks. The reason for this is multifaceted and we could spend years and years arguing about who has the larger list of reasons, but in the end it boils down to the proverbial shoemaker's children: Our development tools are the worst of the worst in software.
You'll probably need your favourite translation engine of choice, but long story short, COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan. Ten known cases with prospects for more. A lot of buildings have been locked down and the city is back on location tracking and mitigation measures.
There's a decent chance I'm facing lockdown again for the first time since March 2020.

> With coroutines and their use cases at least reasonably well established, the event queue mechanism of COROS is introduced to tie them up into a convenient architecture.

> The first piece of COROS explored was the coroutine system, but coroutines are not a well-understood facility in programming circles for some reason. This article builds up some use cases for coroutines and their application in preparation for the next major component of COROS.

> The first in a series of articles that builds up a coroutine-based RTOS for use primarily in memory-constrained embedded systems. Future articles will expound on other pieces of the RTOS after which the full, production-ready source will be published under my usual choice of the WTFPL2 license.
> Local teachers scrambled for $5,000 worth of cash during the Sioux Falls Stampede hockey game on Saturday night.
> The first-ever Dash for Cash event pitted 10 Sioux Falls area teachers against each other to grab as many single dollar bills as possible in less than five minutes. The money, meant to go toward either their classroom or school, was donated by CU Mortgage Direct.
What the actual f\<expletive deleted>!?!?! I would wager a year's salary that the stadium gets MILLIONS in direct and indirect funding from various levels of government, but ***teachers***—people who actually contribute to society!—are left to scramble and wrestle each other for chump change to improve their classrooms!
Late-stage capitalism at its finest! Everything is a spectacle with the poor providing entertainment for the rich.
Mother. Pus. Bucket!
