Re: continuations and threads
May I ask a heretical question (especially from me):
How many of you use call/cc and continuation objects
(rather than mimicing continuations with lambda's)
in large programs? Do "we" really use it to implement
coroutines and backtracking and threads and whatever?
Is call/cc necessary for Scheme?
[Don't shoot. I wrote many papers on all aspects of call/cc
but now that we're building large systems we should revisit
these questions. I'd love to be wrong here.]
