 Subj: IMPLEMENTATION OF 'X'         Status: PUBLIC MESSAGE

 I have recently downloaded f-pc 3.5. There are some nifty features in
 it, but I have found it hard to read, or at least hard to discover how
 Tom implemented some features. I finally found out how he did the /
 commands within .", but have yet been able to figure out how he does the
 'x'--- surrounding an ascii char with single quotes instead of saying
 "ascii x". Any commentary will be appreciated.

 Subj: IMPLEMENTATION OF 'X'         Status: PUBLIC MESSAGE

 The 'x' handling in F-PC 3.50 is located in KERNEL2.SEQ.  The 'x'
 sequence is tested in %NUMBER which eventually gets control when
 a word cannot be found in the search order.  If the 1st and 3rd
 character of the word are 's then this code word branches to the
 high level word %'NUM which converts the 2nd character to a double.

 BTW, it seems strange that %'NUM is state smart.  During compilation
 it converts the character in TIB.  Interpreting, it works with the
 counted string sent to %'NUM.  Consequently, if you are running with
 CAPS ON, 'a' will give different results when interpreting (65) and
 compiling (97).  A possible fix (insensitive to CAPS):


 ' MY'NUM1 IS 'NUM

 or sensitive to CAPS:
