store-value value &optional condition → nil
use-value value &optional condition → nil
value — an object.
condition — a condition object, or nil.
Transfers control to the most recently established applicable restart having the same name as the function. That is, the function abort searches for an applicable abort restart, the function continue searches for an applicable continue restart, and so on.
If no such restart exists, the functions continue, store-value, and use-value return nil, and the functions abort and muffle-warning signal an error of type control-error.
When condition is non-nil, only those restarts are considered that are either explicitly associated with that condition, or not associated with any condition; that is, the excluded restarts are those that are associated with a non-empty set of conditions of which the given condition is not an element. If condition is nil, all restarts are considered.

A transfer of control may occur if an appropriate restart is available, or (in the case of the function abort or the function muffle-warning) execution may be stopped.
Each of these functions can be affected by the presence of a restart having the same name.
If an appropriate abort restart is not available for the function abort, or an appropriate muffle-warning restart is not available for the function muffle-warning, an error of type control-error is signaled.
