The plan is to use this interpreter as stage 1 for for bootstrapping a forth compiler written in forth which would be dope if I can actually get to that point. I've not written anything nontrivial in forth before so uhhh we'll see how stage 2 goes lmao

@reinboar what's the plan for stage 2, another language?

I'm gonna use the HLL forth interpreter to bootstrap a forth compiler and then from that point nefarious yet-to-be-planned things

Oh wait that was a dumb answer, I forgot what I had said in my first post

So the desired outcome of all of this is to be able to pump out forth compilers for various architectures and systems with relative ease. Even if I don't accomplish that, my main motivation is to learn more forth and about basic interpreter/compiler design.
