Gforth represents the compilation semantics of a named word by a
compilation token consisting of two cells: w xt. The top cell
xt is an execution token. The compilation semantics represented by
the compilation token can be performed with
consumes the whole compilation token, with an additional stack effect
determined by the represented compilation semantics.
At present, the w part of a compilation token is an execution token,
and the xt part represents either
compile,(20). However, don't rely on that
knowledge, unless necessary; future versions of Gforth may introduce
unusual compilation tokens (e.g., a compilation token that represents
the compilation semantics of a literal).
You can perform the compilation semantics represented by the compilation
execute. You can compile the compilation semantics
