in thread Contexts and Perl 6

You're asking for an answer that assumes we're using the same definition of "inward". The meaning of that term is unclear in the presence of continuations.

    "inward" as in overloading on return type.

    Where are continuations used in Perl 6? I don't see any language features that explicitly do that. As you said, resuming an exception is simply returning since the stack is not unwound. Closures are starting-off points that take their environment from the actual caller. No co-routine constructs or "live" label references, etc.

    Anyway, my question as it stands, is as has been mentioned on this thread and referenced posts. Or, is the whole conversation overlooking Something Important?

[erix]: a few years ago there was suddenly the news that the Kremlin was using typewriters again. Heard nothing about it afterward
[erix]: (maybe that means it worked)
[oiskuu]: Yeah, it might work as long as there are no root exploits. ;-)
[Corion]: Also, it's much harder to leak paper sheets than it is to leak documents that are available electronically
[oiskuu]: tye, do you make use of remote logging?
[oiskuu]: erix, this gives a new definition to e-paper: something that records the pressure imprints and is bluetooh capable, looks like ordinary paper.
[oiskuu]: So to be really, really sure, you must microwave the paper before you type on it.
