coro 1.0.4

  • Internal fix for R-devel.

coro 1.0.3

CRAN release: 2022-07-19

coro 1.0.2

CRAN release: 2021-12-03

  • The exhaustion sentinel is now as.symbol(".__exhausted__.") instead of as.symbol("exhausted") to reduce the risk of collisions. It is also recommended to never store the exhaustion sentinel in an environment or list, and instead use it as a temporary value to further reduce the risk of collisions (#35).

  • Fixed a leak that occurred via JIT caching (#36).

coro 1.0.1

CRAN release: 2020-12-17

coro 1.0.0

CRAN release: 2020-12-09

This is the first public version of coro.

  • Python iterators created with the reticulate package can now be composed with coro generators. They can also be used with loop() and collect().

  • iterate() has been renamed to loop() to avoid name clash and semantic conflict with reticulate::iterate().

  • collect() calls as_iterator() on its input.

  • as_iterator() is now a generic function (#28).

  • Generators and async functions now support on.exit() expressions. They also support exit expressions installed with functions like withr::local_options(). This requires R >= 3.5.

  • Generator arguments are forced on reentry in the approriate context (e.g. in the tryCatch() context if generator was yielded from a tryCatch()). This makes it possible to clean up cancelled generators (by jumping from the generator with a restart) or propagate errors in async functions.

  • Generators and async functions now support yielding within tryCatch() expressions.

  • Generators and async functions are now disabled when an unexpected exit occurs (error, interrupt, restart invokation, debugger exit, etc.). Reentering the generator is an error.

  • Generators and async functions now support stepping with browser(). Set options(coro_debug = TRUE) for browsing all functions created with coro. Use coro_debug() for browsing specific functions.

  • generator() now accepts functions of one argument. The first time a generator is called the argument is defined in the suspendable function. On subsequent invokations, the argument is returned from yield().

  • generator() now creates generator factories. It takes a function template and returns a function that creates generator functions from this template. This is consistent with languages like Javascript and Python.

  • The async() function operator creates functions for cooperative concurrency using the later and promises framework.

    async_generator() creates iterable functions that are also awaitable.

  • The iterator abstraction has been removed from coro. It is replaced with the following protocol:

    • An iterator is a function. You advance it and get a new value by calling it.
    • An iterator signals exhaustion by returning exhausted() (or equivalently, the quote(exhausted) symbol).
  • Exhausted generators no longer throw when called again. Instead, they return the exhausted() sentinel (#6).

  • Fixed top-level break statements in loops (#7).
