Can you provide an example, I'm reading the manual at
, but it does not suggest an usage example. I can't figure out what to
feed "with-handlers" or simply set! uncaught-exception-handler to
exit? I simply need mzscheme to exit on any error and return none 0
(like other unix programs). It seems mzscheme has some complicated
exception system.
