Definitions for "ABS to absolute"
Convert JForth relative address to 68000 absolute address. JForth "addresses" are actually an offset from the base of the dictionary. This allows us to use addresses that stay the same every time we run JForth, even though JForth may load into different places in memory each time. This makes JForth code more relocatable. The Amiga operating system, however, uses normal 68000 addresses. You must convert JForth relative addresses to 68000 absolute addresses before passing them to the Amiga.
