This month's cover by Robert Tinney shows a rocket-like needle threading its way through granite cubes labeled: DOUBLE , DUPLICATE , and + . The threaded path of the needle is a representation of the process used in FORTH and other threaded languages to create a new word (here, DOUBLE ) with previously defined words (here, DUPLICATE and + ).
