Wow, this is mind-bending. I need to spend some time with this post.

As strange as it looks, it's a fairly conventional forthlike language. The biggest direct impact of sticking the system on top of ZigZag is that tokenization is no longer necessary; the second biggest one is that alternative paths are visually parallel in the code the way they are in flowcharts (instead of one being in front of the other in a linear stream).

If anything is unclear, don't be afraid to ask. Relatively few people clearly understand ZigZag, which makes understanding how this fits in a lot harder, & I don't always explain this stuff well.
