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

— In a kernel, you need interrupts to do multithreading (in this case fake emulated multithreading on 1 thread) so that's why those 2 things are related

— Ohh

— How do debuggers pause code in runtime?
