I am searching for reference implementations of a threaded interpreter
(as opposed to the traditional switch dispatch method). Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks


[I've always taken it to mean that rather than a string of byte codes,
you have a string of routine addresses, and the dispatch is via
something that in C might be written goto *ip++;


There was a long thread in comp.compilers some years back about how you
could write fairly machine independent threaded C code using some gross
hacks. -John]
