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?

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

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

@pokes
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.
