I was just reading Knuth's "Art of computer programing" that sounds like
Coroutines to me.

As far as I remember, coroutines can give up control (that is, suspend themselves) and later resume. And, like threads, they have private local memory. Threadlets, on the other hand, have no local memory (not even local registers) and stop only when they terminate.

of computing.

Writing books takes some time. :-)
