Stackless.com site down? Comments on stackless?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what happened to the Stackless website? I've been unable to access it for a day or so. Are there any alternative download sites? Has anyone used stackless python in anger? I know that Eve Online uses it, and I'm considering trying it out to see if it would offer any benefits over CPython for my project. I know one downside is that I would have to rebuild Boost Python against Stackless..... :( I'm particularily interested in multi-core support. Cheers [Edited by - crivens on May 9, 2008 7:16:11 AM]

As I understand it, it doesn't explicitly give you any 'multi-core' benefits as such. Very few things do, really. What it does give you are lightweight coroutines which allow you to program in a way which scales to multiple cores more easily. However, this requires that you understand how to effectively use coroutines to write concurrent software.
