ress of some (lower level) code to perform the required

operation. This kind of virtual machine can be implemented efficiently in machine code on most processors by simply performing an indirect jump to the address which is the next instruction.

Many Forth implementations use threaded code and nowadays some use the term "threading" for almost any technique used to implement Forth's virtual machine.
