Functional Programming in Scheme
Name binding, Recursion, Iteration, and Continuations

Catch and throw provides for an intuitively simple escape mechanism on functional ground

(catch id catch-expr)

(throw id throw-expression)

Scheme does not support catch and throw

Rather Scheme supports a much more powerful mechanisms based on continuations
