I am reading the Asynchronous Programming in Rust book. As the book said: "both learning and singing can happen at the same time as dancing". Following the example, I wrote the simple code to test it. However in my code dancing is always happen after learning and signing. why?
Async/await runs things concurrently by repeatedly swapping out the currently running task, however such swapping can only happen at an
sing_song have no
.await, no such swapping of current task can happen while they run.
This is also why you should never sleep using
thread::sleep. Rust is not able to let some other task run while it is sleeping because there is no
Check out this example: playground. Additionally try increasing the loop in
dancing to run 20 times.
Without using tokio, how can I yield a task?
You are not going to be able to do anything useful without an executor. The yield function should be available in whatever executor you are using.
I can't find anything equivalent in Rust's Futures.
It doesn't have one. The futures crate does not provide a full featured executor.
