spawn (2 of 13 overloads)

Start a new stackful coroutine that executes on a given execution context.

template<
    typename ExecutionContext,
    typename F,
    typename CompletionToken = DEFAULT>
DEDUCED spawn(
    ExecutionContext & ctx,
    F && function,
    CompletionToken && token = DEFAULT,
    typename constraint< is_convertible< ExecutionContext &, execution_context & >::value >::type  = 0);

This function is used to launch a new stackful coroutine.

Parameters

ctx

Identifies the execution context that will run the stackful coroutine.

function

The coroutine function. The function must be callable the signature:

void function(basic_yield_context<Executor> yield);
token

The completion token that will handle the notification that the coroutine has completed. If the return type R of function is void, the function signature of the completion handler must be:

void handler(std::exception_ptr);

Otherwise, the function signature of the completion handler must be:

void handler(std::exception_ptr, R);
Completion Signature
void(std::exception_ptr, R)

where R is the return type of the function object.

Per-Operation Cancellation

The new thread of execution is created with a cancellation state that supports cancellation_type::terminal values only. To change the cancellation state, call the basic_yield_context member function reset_cancellation_state.
