uniquedialect The *Forth at the heart of Konilo is not a traditional model. As with other Forth systems, it has a *dictionary of *words and two *stacks. But the implementation is quite different. For example: In Konilo, source is evaluated token by token, using *sigils to guide the compiler in understanding how to work with them. Other than sigils, Konilo makes extensive use of *quotations and *combinators to implement control structures. Konilo provides a number of vocabularies for working with data like strings and arrays which are not present in traditional Forth systems.
