in thread Why I learn a language.

I dunno about you but I've been meaning to check out Python for its continuation support and to see whether its closure serialization works better than perls (which plain doesn't).

    Python doesn't do continuations. For that you'd have to go to Ruby. (Or perl 6, but that's a ways off)

      I read on p6l about Python's continuations as a potential model for perl6 continuations about a month ago.

        Taking anything on p6l as canon (or even correct) is a bit questionable. Python doesn't do continuations as part of the language, though as pointed out stackless python (which isn't really stackless, but that's a separate thing) does a form of them.

        Ruby, on the other hand, does do continuations. (As does Lisp, Scheme, and Unlambda, come to think of it)
