coroutine (plural coroutines)
- (programming) A piece of code that performs a task, and that can be passed new input and return output more than once.
- Although a powerful tool, coroutines can be hard to understand due to the way data can flow back and forth between sections of the code.
- subroutine (A coroutine that accepts input once and returns output once)
- generator (A coroutine that accepts input once, but yields output multiple times)
