Well, I have the problem of writing the interpreter. I am
rather hoping that if I can generate interest in the idea
then maybe someone who has the programming facilities,
knowledge and skill to write the interpreter might do so and
then publish it.
Also, I am not thinking in terms of it being me who writes
the proposal for Unicode. I am hoping that the idea of
encoding a portable interpretable object code into regular
Unicode will become of interest to many people and that many
people can participate in designing the best system
possible. I am not seeking to be in charge of that process.
It needs people with expertise in advanced computing to
guide the research and development.
It may take many years to achieve.
I have thought of some uses, such as multimedia
broadcasting on digital television channels and also use in
Ultracode labels. Readers are invited to think of other
uses of a portable interpretable object code encoded into
