in reply to Perl Forth interpreter

I once did a “compiled Forth” on an Apple-II (knock-off) computer and ... much to my surprise ... the damn thing actually worked.   (Instead of running through a TIL dispatcher-loop, it generated M6502 subroutines in-line.)   As I recall, I did about thirty words in assembler before the “Frankenstein moment” happened.   (“It’s a-live!   It’s a-live!!   Bwa-ha-ha-ha-hahaha!”)   :*}   Uhh, okay... nevermind... so you really had to be there, I guess ...
