Default continuation function for handlers.

bool asio_handler_is_continuation(
    ... );

Asynchronous operations may represent a continuation of the asynchronous control flow associated with the current handler. The implementation can use this knowledge to optimise scheduling of the handler.

Implement asio_handler_is_continuation for your own handlers to indicate when a handler represents a continuation.

The default implementation of the continuation hook returns false.

class my_handler;

bool asio_handler_is_continuation(my_handler* context)
  return true;
