    \G Start a native code definition that runs in the context of the
    \G Gforth virtual machine (engine).  Such a definition is not
    \G portable between Gforth installations, so we recommend using
    \G @code{abi-code} instead of @code{code}.  You have to end a
    \G @code{code} definition with a dispatch to the next virtual
    \G machine instruction.

: abi-code ( "name" -- colon-sys )	\ gforth	abi-code
   \G Start a native code definition that is called using the platform's
   \G ABI conventions corresponding to the C-prototype:
   \G @example
   \G Cell *function(Cell *sp, Float **fpp);
   \G @end example
   \G The FP stack pointer is passed in by providing a reference to a
   \G memory location containing the FP stack pointer and is passed
   \G out by storing the changed FP stack pointer there (if necessary).

\g The code after @code{;code} becomes the behaviour of the last
\g defined word (which must be a @code{create}d word).  The same
\g caveats apply as for @code{code}, so we recommend using
\g @code{;abi-code} instead.

    \G yourself.
