[racket] begin and let/cc

(begin (let/cc out (set! k out)) 5) is (in this case) the same as:
(let/cc out (set! k out))
In many cases the forms within a begin-form are spliced into their contexts
(in your case spliced into the top level)
The forms of (let ( ) form ...) are not spliced into their context.
Splicing subforms in their context gives other continuations than without
Hope this helps.

Subject: [racket] begin and let/cc

Dear all,

I don't understand this behaviour:

> (define k #f)
> (begin (let/cc out (set! k out)) 5)
> (k #f)
> (let () (let/cc out (set! k out)) 5)
> (k #f)

Does begin something special regarding continuation?

Best regards,
