Recently, there have been a lot of postings on the comparison of
threaded code vs. full compilation performance. We have a system
which uses a threaded code implementation for interpreting this
particular higher level language. The performance is below our
requirements; hence I am looking at different types of IRs (SPC,
RTL, tuples etc.) and VMs to get good interpreted speed. So, I
have the following question -

      Is threaded code the best form of interpreted code representation
      for performance ? If not, what are the other kinds and how do
      they compare with full compilation ? Any references to general
      comparisons between performance of interpreted code and compiled
      code systems are welcome.
