Subject: Boost coroutine/context libraries

I am trying to write a cooperative task scheduler in c++ and I have
discovered the boost context and coroutine libraries. I have written these
sorts of schedulers many times in assembly language so I appreciate the
issues in the methodology. I have written lots of c code but am less versed
I have been trying to find some straightforward examples of the libraries
use without a lot of extraneous c++ language elements (e.g. binds, lambdas,
etc.). I did find one example
that is very nice, but it will not compile now with the current boost
library. I get an error saying that boost::context::fcontext_t has been
removed from the public api.
Could someone direct me to some examples that demonstrate the context or
coroutine functionality that would be easier to understand.
I want to write a scheduler that is very similar to the example listed above
where coroutines yeild back to a main caller which then chooses the next
coroutine to continue its processing.
