Abstract

The DVL is a virtual computer that can run platform-independent executable files on computers, assuming a given platform has a copy of DVL programmed to run on it. Similar to JAVA, it runs programs in an internal environment of its own op-codes, a set with an upper bound of 100, though with much fewer in use. Currently, it can support almost 100,000,000 words of memory, allowing for large, but not infinite programs. Intended but not yet implemented are arbitrary-sized programs and dll plugin-modules.
