parse:core — ordinary primitive
parse a piece of input (not much unlike WORD) and place it into the given buffer. The difference with word is also that WORD would first skip any delim-char while PARSE does not and thus may yield that one. In a newer version, PARSE will not copy but just return the word-span being seen in the input-buffer - therefore a transient space.
