Common operations of fibers

The following are common operations of fibers.

  • A fiber starts its execution from a callable entity (function pointer, delegate, etc.) that does not take any parameter and does not return anything. For example, the following function can be used as a fiber function:

    void fiberFunction() {
        // ...
    }
    
  • A fiber can be created as an object of core.thread.Fiber class with a callable entity:

    import core.thread;
    
     // ...
        auto fiber = new Fiber(&fiberFunction);
    

    Alternatively, a subclass of Fiber can be defined, and the fiber function can be passed to the constructor of the superclass. In the following example, the fiber function is a member function:
