You need an output queue with both ends accessible rather than a FIFO
output stream ["print"]. But the technique I am using is different. I add
the source location range to all values on the operation and the argument
stacks. The expression terms get the location range of the corresponding
literal / identifier. So do the operations. When a new value is computed
its location range is evaluated as the least range containing the ranges of
the operation and operands generating the value. The ranges can be then
used for error messages generation and in your case to indicate parsing /
evaluation progress and operands association in the source.
