In this paper, we explain mechanisms for providing embedded network processors and other low-level programming environments with light-weight support for safe resource sharing. The solution consists of a host part, known as HOKES, and a network processor part, known as POKES. As common operating system concepts are considered to be too heavy-weight for this environment, we developed a system that pushes resource control all the way to the compiler. The HOKES/POKES architecture is described in detail and its implementation evaluated.
