The current Dr. Dobb's Journal has an article about a new AT&T language
called `C+@' (pronounced `cat'). According to the author, the language is
"not interpreted" but uses a machine-independent coding technique called
"beading". I'm not sure what this means. Is the language threaded (in
the Forth sense)? Is it a p-code compiler for a virtual machine? Is
every processor secretly compatible with every other processor via secret
features of its instruction set known only to AT&T due to an obscure
patent they hold? ;-) And, what about Naomi?

[n. b.: Special kudos to the first email respondent who can correctly
identify the source of the last question.]
