Feature #6695

Updated by ko1 (Koichi Sasada) over 8 years ago

 = Abstract 

 With Feature #6694, the following configuration parameters should be allowed for Thread/Fiber creation. 

 Group1 (new parameters): 
 * name: Thread/Fiber name 
 * vm_stack_size: VM's stack size 
 * machine_stack_size: Machine stack size 

 Group2 (existing parameters): 
 * local_storage: Initial Thread/Fiber local parameters 
 * thread_group: Thread group (Thread only) 
 * priority: Initial priority Thread#priority= (Thread only) 
 * abort_on_exception: abort on exception (Thread only) 

 = Background 

 With Feature #6694, we have a way to specify configurations for Thread creation.    Fiber.new() don't receive any parameters now. 

 = Proposal 

 This is a initial proposal of configuration for Thread/Fiber creation. 

 Group1 (new parameters): 
 * name: Thread/Fiber name 
 * vm_stack_size: VM's stack size 
 * machine_stack_size: Machine stack size 

 vm_stack_size and machine_stack_size are OS dependent (This means that it will be *hint* parameter). 

    Thread#inspect should use `name' this parameter. 

 I also propose a new method Thread#name to get the thread name specified by this parameter. 

 Group2 (existing parameters): 
 * local_storage: Initial Thread/Fiber local parameters 
 * thread_group: Thread group (Thread only) 
 * priority: Initial priority Thread#priority= (Thread only) 
 * abort_on_exception: abort on exception (Thread only) 

 Now, we can specify Group2 parameters only *after* thread creation.    With this parameter, we can specify parameters before thread creation.
