6 Miscellaneous Programming Features
The Resource Facility deals with isomorphic objects; that is, all objects in the resource must have the same form. Thus, any object in the resource can be allocated for any use, and there is no way to distinguish one object from another. For example, you can have a resource of 100-character strings, or a resource of strings of random lengths, but you cannot require a single resource to give you a string of some particular length.
The Resource Facility consists of the following constructs:
