prologicjer, ihmo bytecode seems to be part of the design pattern of many language interpreters for two reasons afict: a) to flatten the parse tree making interpreter easier/faster and b) caching21:14
jeryeah, usually a21:16
prologicI kind of get the point21:16
prologicalso I'm finding (at least in this implemtnation) that message evaluation is quite similar to function evaluation?21:17
prologicand I did need a POP instruction to discard unwanted results from message evaluations whilst pushing others onto the stack for arguments for a future message21:18
jerprologic, message evaluation is exactly a function 21:28
jerwith on caveat, there are two implicit params -- the target of the message, and the call frame (io's Call object)21:28

prologicI’d hate to back myself into corners I can’t get out of :)23:48
