    48 The concurrency substrate enables creation and scheduling of I/O-performing computations through ''one-shot continuations''. An SCont (stack continuation) is a suspended I/O computation, which is in fact just a reference to a TSO object. Hence, capturing the current continuation is just getting a reference to the current TSO. SCont interface is shown below:
