constant:core — definining primitive
CREATE a new word with runtime ((CONSTANT)) so that the value placed here is returned everytime the constant's name is used in code. See VALUE for constant-like names that are expected to change during execution of the program. In a ROM-able forth the CONSTANT-value may get into a shared ROM-area and is never copied to a RAM-address.
