concore documentation

concore is a C++ library that aims to raise the abstraction level when designing concurrent programs. It allows the user to build complex concurrent programs without the need of (blocking) synchronization primitives. Instead, it allows the user to “describe” the existing concurrency, pushing the planning and execution at the library level.

We strongly believe that the user should focus on describing the concurrency, not fighting synchronization problems.

The library also aims at building highly efficient applications, by trying to maximize the throughput.

concore is built around the concept of tasks. A task is an independent unit of work. Tasks can then be executed by so-called executors. With these two main concepts, users can construct complex concurrent applications that are safe and efficient.
