\ implementation of ]] ... [[

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

\ Avoid having to write so many POSTPONEs; Instead of

\ POSTPONE a POSTPONE b POSTPONE c
\ write
\ ]] a b c [[

\ In addition there are some shortcuts for literals (not present in
\ Gforth 0.7.0 and earlier):

\ 1  ]]L               is equivalent to    1  ]]  literal
\ 1. ]]2L              is equivalent to    1. ]] 2literal
\ 1e ]]FL              is equivalent to    1e ]] fliteral
\ parse-name foo ]]SL  is equivalent to    parse-name foo ]] sliteral

\ This program uses the following words
\ from CORE :
\  environment? drop : BEGIN >in @ dup 0= WHILE 2drop and REPEAT ; ! 
\  POSTPONE immediate Literal 
\ from BLOCK-EXT :
\  \ 
\ from DOUBLE :
\  2Literal 
\ from EXCEPTION :
\  throw 
\ from FILE :
\  S" ( 
\ from FILE-EXT :
\  refill 
\ from FLOAT :
\  FLiteral 
\ from STRING :
\  compare SLiteral 
\ from X:parse-name :
\  parse-name 

s" X:parse-name" environment? drop \ just let the system know that we need it
