This directory has the following layout:

  • base/task/: public APIs for posting tasks and managing task queues.
  • base/task/thread_pool/: implementation of the ThreadPool.
  • base/task/sequence_manager/: implementation of the SequenceManager.

Apart from embedders explicitly managing a ThreadPoolInstance and/or SequenceManager instance(s) for their process/threads, the vast majority of users should only need APIs in base/task/.
