Does anyone have any idea as to how I can make this word read the characters in the input buffer while the interpret word is running? I thought about changing the value of the state variable to go from compile to interpret mode, but I still don't know how to access the input buffer. Any help would be great.

You'll need to start following through the interpret word in 
forth/bootstrap/interpreter.fs taking a good look at both the parse-word 
and : words.
