This crate provides miscellaneous tools for concurrent programming:

#### Atomics

* [`AtomicCell`], a thread-safe mutable memory location.<sup>(no_std)</sup>
* [`AtomicConsume`], for reading from primitive atomic types with "consume" ordering.<sup>(no_std)</sup>

#### Thread synchronization

* [`Parker`], a thread parking primitive.
* [`ShardedLock`], a sharded reader-writer lock with fast concurrent reads.
* [`WaitGroup`], for synchronizing the beginning or end of some computation.

#### Utilities

* [`Backoff`], for exponential backoff in spin loops.<sup>(no_std)</sup>
* [`CachePadded`], for padding and aligning a value to the length of a cache line.<sup>(no_std)</sup>
* [`scope`], for spawning threads that borrow local variables from the stack.

*Features marked with <sup>(no_std)</sup> can be used in `no_std` environments.*<br/>

```toml
[dependencies]
crossbeam-utils = "0.8"
```

## Compatibility

Crossbeam Utils supports stable Rust releases going back at least six months,
and every time the minimum supported Rust version is increased, a new minor
version is released. Currently, the minimum supported Rust version is 1.36.
