Now long out of print - this book is required reading for anyone wanting to implement a TIL - most especially Forth (or Forth-like language). The basic mechanisms are explained in detail, followed by code examples for the Z80 but it is not difficult to take the concepts to newer compute designs. Pleased I got my copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old-Style Language Hacking 10 Dec. 2014
By D. Kittrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A wonderful introduction to practical construction of a language interpretor. Yes, it's dated -- but what's a little Z80 assembly compared to Knuth's VM? There's nothing here that won't easily translate to modern architectures and the concepts are solid. Almost makes me want to dig out a TRS-80 just to play with classic tools. An updated book on TIL implementation in modern high-level language would be interesting although given the state of embedded controllers and SBCs probably not as useful (or as fun).

4.0 out of 5 stars Really dated, but with no good parallel 16 Dec. 2013
By Michael Orr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a really dated exposition of how to build Threaded Interpretive Languages in general, and FORTH in particular. The text uses a Z80 extensively, but the ideas can be generalized.

If the text above does not make any sense yo you - this book is not for you.
if it does - there is no good alternative I know of ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past. 31 Oct. 2015
By jb3amz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Love the book, it comes from the era when I was in school. It is a bit dated but the subject material is interesting and informative for those with a technical bent. I was a bit disappointed, thus one star off, of the condition. It is not in as good of a condition as stated. Book is full of high lighter and penciled notes.
