erlang:hibernate/1 with funs?
Tue Aug 17 10:07:55 CEST 2004
You call hibernate/3 like this to give it a fun:
hibernate(erlang, apply, [F, ]).
We'll probably add an hibernate/1 function in R10B implemented
like this in erlang.erl.
The only disadvantage of using funs is if you do hot code replacement;
OTP has no built-in support for replacing code referenced by a fun.
