What Are Signals and Callbacks?[edit | edit source]

See Theory of Signals and Callbacks Tutorial.

Real Life Analogue[edit | edit source]

Think of a fortress with gates, the gates remain open unless someone is attacking. How does the fortress know of an attack, It has Signal Towers that burn a fire, and a person watching the towers, to sound a warning bell and the guards close the gate.

We need some code that works and follows the real life analogue.
