We start with the following steps:

  1. Create a new project and name it a-runtime (alternatively, navigate to ch08/a-runtime in the book’s repository).
  2. Copy the and files in the src folder from the first project we created in Chapter 7, named a-coroutine (alternatively, copy the files from ch07/a-coroutine in the book’s repository) to the src folder in our new project.
  3. Make sure to add mio as a dependency by adding the following to Cargo.toml:
    mio = { version = "0.8", features = ["net", "os-poll"] }
