No, the language appears to be Factor and the ratio of object code to 
source code (from the small samples I have) indicates compiling to 
machine code.   

If you'd like to play with what I have, you can download the 
following:

http://www.sydex.com/temp/tp.main.jpg  - A JPEG image of a short 
source program.

http://www.sydex.com/temp/tp.main.hex - the binary of the compiled 
program.

http://www.sydex.com/temp/zoom3.zip - the raw, sector-by-sector disk 
image (about 1.2MB, compressed to 330K).
