All modules that uses Coro will segfault if You try to use them. After talking to author of Coro You will learn that it is a feature - not a bug.
a code that is written by not stupid human usually says that there is not enough memory (a example). Coro, EV, etc prefer to crash (segfault) instead usually behavior: You can waste a lot of time to understand that the library requires to do something against to read normal error report.
So I join one previous review: "Author is not very nice"
but don't join that: "the module is great".
code that segfaults if You try to step to the left or the right from example can't be great.

Great module. You could do so much with Coro / AnyEvent. Work of a genius in my opinion.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
Don't use any modules by Marc Lehmann, you will almost certainly regret it later. This author has a history of extreme hostility towards the Perl community and will actively prevent you from using his software if he doesn't like you, or what you do with it.
To give you an example, in the 6.1 release of AnyEvent he made AnyEvent.pm die if you use it together with IO::Async::Loop::AnyEvent. metacpan.org/source/MLEHMANN/AnyEvent...

Author is not very nice, but the module is great.

Wow, I can't believe no-one had reviewed this module.
In short, this is what Perl Threads should work like. After the fragile-but-fast Perl 5.5 threading thesis, and the slow-but-reliable Perl 5.6 ithreading antithesis, this is the perfect synthesis that gives you a fast and reliable threading model. Highly recommended.
