Continuations and CPS: A different flavour of 'return'

When writing asynchronous code, it is common to pass code references around to represent what to do next after some operation completes. This is a continuation. This talk discusses this technique along with the "CPS" CPAN module, which assists with solving a number of control-flow problems.
