Continuations in Ruby v. Scheme

Greetings All,

    I just picked up a copy of 'Ruby in a Nutshell' and noticed that the
language supports 'callcc' and has a 'continuation' class as well as a 'binding'

    Can anyone comment on how these facilities stack up against Scheme
continuations and closures?

    Are they equally powerful in the abstract? How do they differ at the
implementation level?

    Would it be feasible to write a Scheme to Ruby translator?

Warmest Regards,

Peter J. Wasilko
