I normally look in boost whenever I need one of these things, and
voila, it has one:

Also, I would try the C-Coroutines stuff directly, they tend to work (
you cannot throw across coroutines, and this kind of stuff, but you do
not need to throw or use new in C++ )

I'd also point that in fact I currently do all my coding in C++, even
when doing some prety normal malloc/printf/strcpy things. I've found
that even not using any fancy stuff being able to use some small
features makes my task easier ( recent C compilers have all things
like inline et al, but they  got to c++ first, in fact, IIRC, let me
check my copy ... yes, K&R 2e preface "We used Bjarne Stroustroup C++
translator extensively for local testing..." )
