Creating a task completion source for a C++ coroutine: Failing to produce a result

by Raymond Chen

From the article:

So far, we’ve been working on building a result_holder that can hold any type of result. But what about errors?

Because maybe you have code that’s waiting for a result, and the code that’s supposed to produce the result realizes that it messed up and wants to say, “Sorry, no result today.”...

Creating a task completion source for a C++ coroutine: Producing a result

by Raymond Chen

From the article:

We’ve been looking at creating different types of awaitable synchronization objects. This time, we’ll create something analogous to what C# calls a Task­Completion­Source and what PPL calls a task_completion_event. For lack of a better name, I’m going to call it a result_holder...
