Threaded interpretive languages

Post by LucidGuppy » Thu Jul 08, 2004 3:31 pm

Is anyone on this website familiar with threaded interpretive languages (in the spirit of Forth)? I'm making good progress in making one - but just checking if anyone's been tinkering with them lately?

I used several forths for many years. I have not used it for some time now since it is not what "corportate america" seems interested in, and few companies will support an environment for it. I do, however, still love the direct simplicity to solutions that forth offers.

I think the problem is the fact C programmers are so plentiful and the syntax is in so many other languages that its become the lingua franca. <p>My main problem right now in making a TIL is the lack of registers on the chip I'm using. Can anyone point me to resouces on how to use memory locations like registers? (The chip I have only has two!)<p>Thanks,
Matt

If your chip (whichever one it is, you didn't bother to say) supports alternate register sets, then they are probably aliases for locations in low memory already. Look for something like a "register base pointer" or "register base index".<p>Editor Dan
