(and most other lisp implementations) also
use bytecode. Some interpreted
versions of BASIC
, such as Applesoft
the code into bytecode. The UCSD P-code
was sort of
an early bytecode system.
Note that while the instructions in bytecode may be just
a byte, bytecode may also contain strings, integers, floats,
etc., which will be stored in their binary, native formats for
the language (which are most probably a word or longer).
