In a book I bought recently, the author implements a Forth-like script
language in what he calls a "threaded interpretive language". What are the
benefits/drawbacks of TILs compared to more traditional language
implementations are? Also, are TILs usually used for RPN, stack based
languages like Forth? What other languages are TIL based? Thanks in advance
for any info provided.

[Threaded code is most often used for a stack virtual machine, but the first
two threaded code systems I ran into were Fortran compilers for the PDP-11.
