I feel the "I implement feature X because I need it"
approach will not grow the Stackless community as
quickly as a more coordinated effort. I feel Stackless
deserves to grow.
In the meanwhile, I can focus on my own efforts :-(
Very soon, I will start running tests to see how well
my prototypes perform and better understand
I am very interested in examining the Stackless
scheduler. About two months ago, I started to look at
Stackless code. I am trying to decide whether the
addition of queues will help performance. Again, I
need to run tests. I need to be able to properly
profile Stackless programmes.
If I do this in November, I can perhaps get the help
of one of my operations research professors to analyze
the algorithms. I have to keep in mind that the
professor is very busy.
What would help (speed things up) is:
1) Can I have a pseudo-code description of the
2) What pieces of code should I be focusing on?
3) How do I expose new functions to a debugger?
