The pilMCU is the PicoLisp interpreter itself :) To interact with it, as of the
moment we will use UART and use a PC as terminal. But later we plan to add PS/2
and VGA as the means to interact with the hardware interpreter, i hope this
answer your inquiry? Thanks!

yes, but I wondered what would be the device the PicoLisp REPL runs on
in this case.

thanks for the info!
