Cur routines in my soft-ware programme

I bought a copy of the latest Linux Format, which had something that looked interesting in it (a look back on the first 15 years of Linux on the occasion of its 15th birthday). There was also an interview with the person behind a BBC open source project - a 'framework' for multimedia networked applications (*). This interview refers twice to something called 'cur routines'. A reasonable guess, confirmed by looking at the website for the project, is that the guy was actually talking about coroutines.
This is almost up there with an article in the Indy in its early days which managed to misspell software and program.

(*) The weaselpedia (TM) definition of framework is 'a piece of software that doesn't do anything useful, but could be made to do something useful if you add the useful bits yourself' (but that's by the by).
