Stack Computers, Forth, RISC, CISC, etc.

I finished reading Stack Computers. This class of processors is a bit different from the mainstream today — neither is it like the classic RISC load/store architectures (MIPS, SPARC, PPC, etc…), nor is it like the surviving (x86) or dead (VAX) CISC architectures. In a way, it’s slightly reminiscent of the high-level language architectures of […]
