Functions are called "words" in Fift, and there is a special
word word. The whitepaper (https://ton.org/docs/fiftbase.pdf) explains it this way:
«word (x – S), parses a word delimited by the character with the Unicode codepoint x from the remainder of the current input line and pushes the result as a String. For instance,
bl word abracadabra type will print the string “abracadabra”. If x = 0, skips leading spaces, and then scans until the end of the current input line. If x = 32, skips leading spaces before parsing the next word».
But I don't fully understand how
x works, could you explain it in different words? I see that some people use commands like
124 word, what does that stand for? If I want to use
\n as a word delimiter, what should I use?
