crossbeam-epoch 0.6.1

Epoch-based garbage collection

Epoch-based garbage collection

Build Status License Cargo Documentation

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

If a thread removes a node from a concurrent data structure, other threads may still have pointers to that node, so it cannot be immediately destructed. Epoch GC allows deferring destruction until it becomes safe to do so.

Usage

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
crossbeam-epoch = "0.6"

Next, add this to your crate:

extern crate crossbeam_epoch as epoch;

The minimum required Rust version is 1.26.
