    Interpreter / Virtural Machine Connection.

    I have read where an interpreter is really a Virtual Machine and I can't find an angle that really documents an Interpreter for a damn anyways.

    Any links or search topics is appreciated!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    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.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
