Look at the first example on that page, produce/consume: your
for_each-style algorithm is similar to the 'produce' coroutine, and
iteration of ranges is similar to the 'consume' coroutine.

Coroutines are typically implemented in C++ by storing the current
context somewhere (registers, stack, PC), and switching to another
context. This can be done in assembler or using OS-specific routines.

It's similar to threads, except there is no scheduler, typically no
kernel, and no concurrency involved.

There is a Boost.Coroutine library somewhere, if you want to try it. I
wrote some code with it that converts a for_each-style mechanism into a
classic pair of iterators, if you're interested.
