Interesting explanation of continuations in a comment on a weblog entry on continuations and parrot, by Autrijus:

Just today I tried to explain continuations to two fellow Perl programmers, and I came up with the notion that it's just:

$continuation = \&return;

They grokked it instantly.

Update: Interesting, posting this on my site works, and it crossposts to advo, but viewing the site itself doesn't work. It's surprising that *anything* works, considering the drive hosting / is totally borked and sitting in a colo somewhere.
