trying my hand at implementing JonesForth for Cortex-M0 lets goooo

to anybody who's read JonesForth: why does he reserve 3 bits but only use two flags in the length byte (IMMEDIATE and HIDDEN)? Seems like words could be up to 64 characters long if only 2 bits are reserved.


@winduptoy gur last bit is used for gur lenmask flag, iirc it has something to do with skipping over hidden words
