It would seem to me that stack-based interpreters would perform
extremely badly on modern RISC processors with many registers and
long latencies to access cache, let alone physical memory.
Has there been work done on interpretive engines which work in
this kind of environment particularly well? Especially ones which are
written in higher-level-languages; particularly "C". References
