Compiler Gurus;

Time to hark back to the nostalgic 70's.... Might anyone out there point
me to a rigorous description /specification of pcode?

To make a long story short, I've got a Cish interpreter that I would like
to modify to produce abstract stack machine code and pcode was the first
thing I thought of. Does anyone have any suggestions for an alternate
stack machine code format? Also, these interpreters are very popular with
the authors of Compiler Construction books; has anyone seen a really good
one in some textbook?
