Classic programs (to read)
Jarno has a wonderful suggestion that we collect a list of good programs for people to study. I really like this idea. Unfortunately, I couldn't actually think of any programs for the list.

Applications of Continuations
Cedric wants to know about applications of continuations:

Fortunately, there's a paper with that title by Daniel Friedman at the U of Indiana.

The PLT Scheme guys wrote the original paper on using continuations to simplify web applications. This has since been implemented in Cocoon via a continuation enhanced Javascript (Rhino).

CPS for Perl
Dan Sugalski gives a nice tutorial on continuations and continuation passing style (CPS). Then he ends with this:
Still, in a register rich system CPS is definitely pretty darned cool I'll admit, after this, I'm almost tempted to shift Parrot over to a full CPS system. Almost....
