dup simply duplicates the top of the stack. It's a code word.

To see how F-PC v3.6 defines DUP, perform below steps.

1. Launch F-PC v3.6 (A famous DOS Forth)

2. Type in: „see dup“. FPC replies:

DUP is Code, load DISASSEM to see it. ok

3. So I type in: „load disassem“.

A file MUST be open to perform this operation.

4. So I type: „open disassem“.

open disassem of 16329 bytes. ok

5. Let's continue: „load disassem“.

Stack Empty.    OOPS!  <--- oops! sounds like there's a problem but it can be ignored.

6. Let's see how DUP is defined. Type: „see dup“

 568 8B  SP DI MOV,                8B FC              .|  <---- DUP 's definition start from here

 56E FF  AX #) JMP,                FF E0              .`  <---- end of DUP's definition
 570 5A  DX POP,                   5A                 Z   <---- start of the next word's definition
