Is there a reason that you're not using the in-built debugger for this? I'm fairly sure it would make your life much easier.
I'm making code that will associate a value with a function name and will store both in a table. Thank you Mark and Stefan for helping.
It sounds as if you're working with Forth at quite a low level. Perhaps you should consider breaking the task down into small chunks and then posting patches to the list for feedback? Then people can offer more guidance to help you.
