Crossbeam Epoch

Build Status License Cargo Documentation Rust 1.26+

This crate provides epoch-based garbage collection for building concurrent data structures.

When a thread removes an object from a concurrent data structure, other threads may be still using pointers to it at the same time, so it cannot be destroyed immediately. Epoch-based GC is an efficient mechanism for deferring destruction of shared objects until no pointers to them can exist.

Usage

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
crossbeam-epoch = "0.7"

Next, add this to your crate:

extern crate crossbeam_epoch as epoch;

Compatibility

The minimum supported Rust version is 1.26.

This crate can be used in no_std environments, but only on nightly Rust.
