    An interpreter is not generally a virtual machine, unless it is interpreting some sort of byte code that represents instructions for a hypothetical machine. The JVM (Java Virtual Machine), the UCSD-P System, and Microsoft's .NET are examples of interpreters that execute a virtual machine environment. A BASIC or dBase interpreter that directly executes BASIC or dBase code without compilation is NOT a virtual machine.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
