PForth V27 Original Author: Phil Burk with Larry Polansky, David Rosenboom and Darren Gibbs. Last updated: After 20-May-2010 Ported to AROS by Adam Bricker: built 30-Jun-2012 01:27:01 (static). Do not use V24 under AROS (probably other OSes as well), it has a subtle bug with */ when using large numbers. I compiled this a while back, sorry for the delay uploading it, I've been pretty busy. The version compiled is the unix stdio version. The Posix version will not compile under AROS due to missing dependencies. To install it, copy it to somewhere in your path or edit S:User-Startup and insert the statement "Path Mypath ADD" without the quotes and substituting the path for "Mypath". Type "reboot cold" for it to take effect or just type the same path command in the shell. Alternatively, CD into the directory where PForth is located and type PForth. Two good Forth books which are available for free on the internet are: * "Starting Forth" http://www.forth.com/starting-forth/index.html * "Thinking Forth" http://thinking-forth.sourceforge.net/ Both of these talk about using blocks, PForth does not support blocks, use files instead and inside PForth type: "include myfile.f" or whatever the name of your file is. Don't forget the path if it's not in the current directory. These books are good for beginner and intermediate Forth programmers and even an advanced Forth programmer might learn a few things. PForth compiled cleanly with no warnings. One test out of 66 in t_corex.fth failed, however, the comment says "Expected failure" so I assume it is supposed to do that. All other tests passed in all the included test programs. A program I ported to Forth in 2005 ran properly after making a few changes from the GForth version. No extensive testing has been done and I am not a programmer by profession, so if it doesn't work properly or if it corrupts your hard drive (always make regular backups), I am not responsible, use at your own risk and if it's broken, you fix it. The original source code is included in this archive. However, with that said, I haven't found any bugs yet.
