I removed the Order interpreter implementation from the files section some
time ago, because it had changed significantly due to the discovery of a
couple of techniques for removing certain practical limitations. The
documentation and examples mostly reflect the current Order interpreter,
but as I have not been working on the implementation for some time, the
interpreter is not ready for publication. If you are really interested,
then I could e-mail you a snapshot of the interpreter.

The current Order interpreter also uses C99 preprocessor features, namely
variadics and placemarkers, so it is not immediately useful for C++
programming. The latest GNU CPP and the Wave library are known to be able
to preprocess the Order interpreter. Other preprocessors have not been
tested, but it should be possible to port the interpreter to most (more or
less buggy) preprocessors that support the C99 extensions.
