macro boot.janet on line 369, column 1 (with [binding ctor dtor] & body) Evaluate body with some resource, which will be automatically cleaned up if there is an error in body. binding is bound to the expression ctor, and dtor is a function or callable that is passed the binding. If no destructor (dtor) is given, will call :close on the resource.
