   @section @file{ans-report.fs}: Report the words used, sorted by wordset
   
   If you want to label a Forth program as ANS Forth Program, you must
   document which wordsets the program uses; for extension wordsets, it is
   helpful to list the words the program requires from these wordsets
   (because Forth systems are allowed to provide only some words of them).
   
   The @file{ans-report.fs} tool makes it easy for you to determine which
   words from which wordset and which non-ANS words your application
   uses. You simply have to include @file{ans-report.fs} before loading the
   program you want to check. After loading your program, you can get the
   report with @code{print-ans-report}. A typical use is to run this as
   batch job like this:
   @example
   gforth ans-report.fs myprog.fs -e "print-ans-report bye"
   @end example
   
   The output looks like this (for @file{compat/control.fs}):
   @example
   The program uses the following words
   from CORE :
   : POSTPONE THEN ; immediate ?dup IF 0= 
   from BLOCK-EXT :
   \ 
   from FILE :
   ( 
   @end example
   
   @subsection Caveats
   
   Note that @file{ans-report.fs} just checks which words are used, not whether
   they are used in an ANS Forth conforming way!
   
   Some words are defined in several wordsets in the
   standard. @file{ans-report.fs} reports them for only one of the
   wordsets, and not necessarily the one you expect. It depends on usage
   which wordset is the right one to specify. E.g., if you only use the
   compilation semantics of @code{S"}, it is a Core word; if you also use
   its interpretation semantics, it is a File word.
