True Block Closures

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Dolphin compiler and virtual machine now support true block closures and not just Smalltalk-80 block semantics. This makes the calling of simple blocks more efficient and also prevents pluggable blocks from holding onto chains of unnecessary objects and preventing them from being garbage collected.
