UCSD P-System & "compile once, run anywhere"

A friend was claiming that with the UCSD P-System, one could "compile once"
and then "run anywhere" (where "anywhere" means different kinds of
computers running the P-System, not different instances of the same computer).

Was this true?

Did users commonly compile on system A and then take the P-Code to
system B and run it successfully?

I'd have thought that media incompatibility would have tended to
limit this capability.

Was any commerical P-System software sold that was a single binary,
but the vendor expected the user to be able to install/run it on
any brand/model of P-System? (Or, did vendors have to produce a version
for every platform?)
