Neat-o. I gave away my copy of that book 19 years ago when I finished with
the course. I don't remember a thing about that book other than that it was
about Scheme. To me, the course was learn-Scheme-to-get-an-A, but I always
thought the professors were trying to get at something more profound, I just
didn't care. Get my A and get out of there. Now that I'm older, I bet a
reread of the text would probably be more meaningful. Thanks for the link.
For other erlang related code, there is an implementation in user
contribution of trapexit, and I wrote a very simple one too

That's a pretty good link, too. For the lazy among you, I think the

That's the way I probably would do it in real life Erlang. (So if you
stumble across this thread and thought to copy my way, consider Joe's
first.) I was going for more the brain-bending exercise of doing this
functionally. The catch with a process is that it does not get
automatically garbage collected: would have to kill it manually.
