By default, a defining word takes the name for the defined word from the input stream. Sometimes you want to supply the name from a string. You can do this with:
nextname( c-addr u – ) gforth-0.4 “nextname”
The next defined word will have the name c-addr u; the defining word will leave the input stream alone.
s" foo" nextname create
is equivalent to:
nextname works with any defining word.
