\ This implements a subset of the gforth locals syntax in pure ANS Forth

\ This file is in the public domain. NO WARRANTY.

\ This implementation technique has been described by John Hayes in
\ the SigForth Newsletter 4(2), Fall '92. He did not do the complete
\ job, but left some more mundane parts as an exercise to the reader.

\ I don't implement the "|" part, because 1) gforth does not implement
\ it and 2) it's unnecessary; just put a 0 before the "{" for every
\ additional local you want to declare.

\ This program uses PARSE from the core ext and COMPARE from the
\ string wordsets
