gforth.el: indentation does not work right on the first line of a
buffer. anton 27jan95
Conditional compilation continues after the file ends. This is allowed
by the standard (through an ambiguous condition), but the compiler
should at least produce a warning. anton 27jan95
QUERY and TIB may behave differently than some may expect. TIB always
points to the current SOURCE, and QUERY puts its result there. anton
open-path-file expands "./" into the sourcefilename. It should either
not expand "./" or provide a mechanism that allows the application to
determine what "./" should expand to. anton 16jun98
gforth.el: Typing <ret> does not work when tabs separate words in a
line, and there is a \-comment at the end of the line. anton 19feb00
SEE does not work when the control structure is too complex (e.g.,
load http://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/forth/pentomino.fs and then do
SEE NEXT-PIECE). anton 5mar2000
Include cannot handle lines longer than 255 characters. anton 4sep00
Errors happening during a LOAD do not report the offending word and
its context (e.g., the 64-byte line). anton 8sep00
Our ecvt routine apparently does not work correctly for Infs and NaNs.
Try "ac_cv_func_ecvt=no ./configure; make" and then in Gforth: "1e 0e
f/ f. 0e 0e f/ f.". anton 25sep00
Our ecvt routine does not round correctly, e.g., 0.25->0.3. Marcel

Newline has only LF (instead of CRLF) in DOS. Bruce Hoyt 25oct2000
F. does not print trailing zeroes (e.g., "10 SET-PRECISION 125e f.")
Block 0 does not work as it should: "0 block drop update save-buffers"
does not write to the blocks file. "0 block 1024 dump" seems to give
the previous contents of the buffer. Travis Bemann 10jul2001
When accessing a block beyond the end of the block file, the result is
filled with spaces (this is also documented). However, when accessing
a previously unwritten block before the end of the block file, we will
get a block full of zeroes on most (all?) OSs. This inconsistency
should be eliminated and the documentation fixed. anton 14jul2001
Path handling may have a bug:
strace $FORTH 'fpath= .|~+/gforth s" /home/anton/threading-variations/gforth/mach32b.fs" include gforth/kernel/main.fs bye'
tries to open gforth/kernel/gforth/kernel/aliases.fs, then
gforth/gforth/kernel/aliases.fs, but not gforth/kernel/aliases.fs.
