Hello,

> How does the toplevel differ from the bytecode interpreter?

No difference. Toplevel expression are compiled as bytecode and then
executed by bytecode interpreter.

> Am I right that bytecode just runs in a VM?

Yes.

> Also, is the VM written in OCaml itself?

No, in C (see directory byterun/ in ocaml source code).

Yours,
