Creating Our Own Fibers

In this chapter, we take a deep dive into a very popular way of handling concurrency. There is no better way of getting a fundamental understanding of the subject than doing it yourself. Fortunately, even though the topic is a little complex, we only need around 200 lines of code to get a fully working example in the end.

What makes the topic complex is that it requires quite a bit of fundamental understanding of how CPUs, operating systems, and assembly work. This complexity is also what makes this topic so interesting. If you explore and work through this example in detail, you will be rewarded with an eye-opening understanding of topics you might only have heard about or only have a rudimentary understanding of. You will also get the chance to get to know a few aspects of the Rust language that you haven’t seen before, expanding your knowledge of both Rust and programming in general.

We start off by introducing a little background knowledge that...
