{ $description "Disassembles either a compiled word definition or an arbitrary memory range (in the case " { $snippet "obj" } " is a pair of integers)." }
{ $notes "In some cases the Factor compiler emits data inline with code, which can confuse the disassembler. This occurs in words which call " { $link dispatch } ", where the jump table addresses are compiled inline." } ;
