WebAssembly: Web Workers

This is a continuation of a series of articles exploring how we can build and work with WebAssembly modules using Emscripten. The previous articles are not required reading to understand what we’re going to cover today but, if you’re curious, you can find them here:

An Introduction to WebAssembly (this article uses Emscripten’s helper methods to communicate between JavaScript and the module)
Using Emscripten to Create a Bare-Bones Module
Calling Into JavaScript From Bare-Bones C Code
Caching to HTML5 IndexedDB

Today we’re going to continue using a bare-bones WebAssembly module (no Emscripten built-in helper methods) just to keep things as clear as possible as we examine HTML5 Web Workers.
