In the context of dimensional continuation, it is shown that axial anomalies are associated with chiral noninvariance of the action (but not of the measure) and they can be extracted nonperturbatively from the heat kernel. Other techniques where the action is deemed invariant but the functional integral measure is not are shown to be equivalent.
