— Nitpick: I don't like require or definition out of order


Nevertheless, I had a question. Does regular JavaScript source (without spawn) have any benefit of running through Hz?

— Ohh in the Statues example right?

— I usually stick all requires at the top of the file, guess I forgot this time

— Yeah, if you've started your own dispatcher and imported the compiled code into it as a module, then you can tell the dispatcher to pause whenever you want to do something else in regular JS land

— 🤔

— It would still be useful for general interrupts... a use case I have is to make a green threading kernel based on Linux

— In that use case spawn isn't part of it

— What's this?

— The interrupt or the kernel?

— Both

— The kernel is just that old bastard child hertzfeld kernel, the interrupt is pretty much any signal you want to make the code pause, giving control to something else on-demand
