The place to start looking for a definition of P-Code would probably

What, you've never seen that text file? "How To Shoot Yourself In The
Foot With A Programming Language" or something like that. It goes

Pascal -- The compiler won't let you shoot yourself in the foot.
BASIC -- You shoot yourself in the foot with a water pistol.
Assembly -- You shoot yourself in the foot with a vulcan cannon.
