Is there a word that can tell me the name of the current word that is executing?
I want something like this:
: myword obtainWord ;
obtainWord would somehow return "myword". Any tips would be great.
No, I don't think this is really possible because of the way in which Forth works (at least I ended up using a different solution for the debugger anyway).
Well, it is - to some extent:
: saymyname r@ begin cell - dup @ 1 <> while repeat cell - lfa2name type ; : bar saymyname cr ; bar
will say "bar"
But it only works reliably so far if it's very early in the word (before any other cells that hold "1" which is the CFA for a colon definition.
