Annotation of gforth/README, revision 1.10
1.7 anton 1: Gforth is a fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth
1.8 anton 2: language. It works nicely with the Emacs editor, offers some nice
1.9 anton 3: features such as input completion and history and a powerful locals
4: facility, and it even has (the beginnings of) a manual. Gforth employs
5: traditional implementation techniques: its inner innerpreter is
6: indirect or direct threaded. Gforth is distributed under the GNU
7: General Public license (see COPYING).
1.8 anton 8:
9: Gforth runs under Unix and DOS and should not be hard to port to other
1.10 ! anton 10: systems supported by GCC. This version has been tested successfully on
! 11: Linux (for Intel), SunOS (SPARC) and Ultrix (MIPS).
1.1 anton 12:
1.7 anton 13: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail
14: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have problems. To start
15: the system, just say `gforth' (after installing it).

1.7 anton 26: If you want to work on Gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found
27: in ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there,
28: it's ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are
29: doing. The most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words,
30: the documentation and the foreign language interface for C.
