1.42 Continuation

Defined in namespace Smalltalk
Superclass: Object
Category: Language-Implementation

At my heart, I am something like the goto instruction; my creation sets the label, and my methods do the jump. However, this is a really powerful kind of goto instruction. If your hair is turning green at this point, don’t worry as you will probably only deal with users of continuations, rather than with the concept itself.
