In Parsing Words in TurboForth Kernal
Given a CFA on the stack, >BODY returns the address of the body of the word. The “body” contains the “payload” of the word.
Only applies to words created with CREATE (i.e. VARIABLE, CONSTANT, VALUE). It is not meaningful to apply >BODY to words that are not children of CREATE. >BODY may also be applied to words that utilise DOES> to carry out their work.
