Spinnaker Plus (later marketed as WinPlus) was an xTalk that had
externals—what they called "software slot objects",—which did allow
you to parse the script from the point at which the external command
or function was called. In your C code, you simply asked for the next
token(s) and interpreted or evaluated the values. Simple and elegant.
I look forward to the equivalent in Rev someday.
