%X Describes the basic idea of threaded code.
Compares to hard code (subroutine calls) and interpreters.
%A Richard H. Eckhouse Jr.

%X Describes threaded code and ``knotted code''. I (pardo) think that
this is a very clear introduction to threaded code.
%A Peter M. Kogge

%X Describes how to build a threaded code interpeter/compiler from
* Direct threaded/indirect threaded.
* Less than 2:1 performance hit of threading compared to full
* Note about bad compilers contributing to relative OK-ness of
* Ease of rewriting stuff.
* Ease of tuning.
My favorite of the three is Eckhouse & Morris; however I don't know
where to get it. The pages that I have are photocopies graciously
sent to me by a friend. As the title implies, this book is several
years old and undoubtedly out-of-print.
