Task execution related traits and utilities.
In the Tokio execution model, futures are lazy. When a future is created, no
work is performed. In order for the work defined by the future to happen, the
future must be submitted to an executor. A future that is submitted to an
executor is called a "task".
The executor is responsible for ensuring that [`Future::poll`] is called
whenever the task is [notified]. Notification happens when the internal state of
a task transitions from "not ready" to ready. For example, a socket might have
received data and a call to `read` will now be able to succeed.
This crate provides traits and utilities that are necessary for building an
* The [`Executor`] trait describes the API for spawning a future onto an
* [`enter`] marks that the current thread is entering an execution
context. This prevents a second executor from accidentally starting from
within the context of one that is already running.
* [`DefaultExecutor`] spawns tasks onto the default executor for the current
* [`Park`] abstracts over blocking and unblocking the current thread.
