Numerous high-level control operators, with various properties, exist in the literature. To understand or compare them is difficult since their definitions use quite different theoretical frameworks; moreover, to our knowledge, no implementation offers them all. This paper tries to explain control operators by the often simple stack manipulation they perform. We therefore present what we think these operators are, in an executable framework derived from abstract continuations.

For instance, we do not claim our implementation to be faithful nor we attempt to formally derive these implementations from their original definitions. The goal is to give a flavor of what control operators are, from an implementation point of view. Last but worth to say, all errors are mine. Among the many existing control operators, w...
