PostPosted: Wed 16 May 2012, 11:59    Post_subject: gFORTH pet  

I just compiled gFORTH on Racy53 and am attaching a .pet here.

To run after installation, open a terminal window and type "gforth".

To leave type "bye"

To test type:
 5 5 + .

That should print a 10 on the terminal.

It puts the two numbers 5 and 5 on the stack, performs an addition, and then pops the result off and prints it on-screen.

To learn FIRTH go here and read this online book (Starting FORTH by Leo Brady):

Is this a good link to GForth?

I am so bad at reading text so I get unsure of
if GForth is just an interpreter or if it produce standalone
programs that are executable? Or does it have to have GForth
running as an Interpreter all the time.

I fail to remember name but around 1990 or so there where
a Forth for Dos that compiled DOS executable standalone programs.

Very handy using that one. Big difference in how slow
and big an interpreter program is and running the free standing executables.

I get curious on what the name of that Forth could have been.
Existed on CD from a big known American University. UCLA?
or similar

I use Google Search on Puppy Forum
not an ideal solution though
