jpl-queues implements a few different kinds of queue data structures.

These kinds of queues are provided:

  • Bounded and unbounded FIFO queues.
  • Lossy bounded FIFO queues that drop elements when full.
  • Unbounded random-order queues that use less memory than unbounded FIFO queues.

Additionally, a synchronization wrapper is provided to make any queue conforming to the jpl-queues API thread-safe for lightweight multithreading applications. (See Calispel for a more sophisticated CL multithreaded message-passing library with timeouts and alternation among several blockable channels.)

jpl-queues is used by Calispel.
