I don't fully understand volatile. I was hoping that someone could explain it in terms that I can understand.

I sort of need it in the "Volatile for Dummies" way of saying it.

It would help if you provided us a little bit of context.

What do you think the volatile keyword does? What are you not sure about? What are you confused with? What sources have you read so far?
