What's the official definition of byte-code ? Any documentation and
book related to byte-code and byte-code compiler ? Does byte-code
just a simple version of CPU's opcode ?

[Here in computer-land, there's no official definition of anything.
I'd say a byte code is a langauge encoded a byte or two at a time and
intended to be interpreted. -John]
