abort objprocedure

Raises a non-continuable exception represented by obj. The abort procedure can be implemented as follows:

(define (abort obj)
  ((current-exception-handler) obj)
  (abort (make-property-condition
	   "Exception handler returned")))

The abort procedure does not ensure that its argument is a condition. If its argument is a condition, abort does not ensure that the condition indicates a non-continuable exception.
