Hi Stackless folks,

I just thought I'd let you know about a tutorial I wrote on continuations that 
I wrote for a compiler class that we teach here at Caltech.  I used Python as 
my example language since, well, more people know it than OCaml.  ;^)  I also 
had the ulterior motive of promoting Stackless since I've always thought it 
was the way to go for Python.

The tutorial is written with the "average programmer" in mind--one who hasn't 
spent a lot of time thinking about the stack but has probably never used a 
stack-free programming language.

The URL is:

I'd appreciate any feedback you can give.
