Basic mini-oof.fs Usage

There is a base class (class, which allocates one cell for the object pointer) plus seven other words: to define a method, a variable, a class; to end a class, to resolve binding, to allocate an object and to compile a class method.

object       -- a-addr         mini-oof       ``object''
object is the base class of all objects.
method       m v "name" -- m' v         mini-oof       ``method''
Define a selector.
var       m v size "name" -- m v'         mini-oof       ``var''
Define a variable with size bytes.
class       class -- class selectors vars         mini-oof       ``class''

end-class       class selectors vars "name" --         mini-oof       ``end-class''
End the definition of a class.
defines       xt class "name" --         mini-oof       ``defines''

new       class -- o         mini-oof       ``new''
