Annotation of gforth/README, revision 1.1
1.1 ! anton 1: This is the current state (pre-alpha) of gforth. This is not a
! 2: distribution for the general public, since it is not yet mature
! 3: enough. There is no warranty of any kind; this program is
! 4: distributed under the GNU General Public license (see COPYING).
! 6: You will probably find a Linux binary included in the package and the
! 7: configuration set up for Linux. If you want to install it on another
! 8: system, read INSTALL and I wish you good luck (Mail us if you have
! 9: problems).
! 11: To start the system just say `gforth'. This gives you a pretty barren
! 12: system. `gforth startup.fs' gives you most ANSI wordsets. If you miss
! 13: a word, just grep for it in *.fs.
! 15: If you want to work on gforth, mail me an encrypted UNIX password
! 16: (i.e., what you find in /etc/passwd). Tasks to be done can be found in
! 17: ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there, it's
! 18: ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are doing. The
! 19: most important tasks IMO are the configuartion script, the missing ANS
! 20: Forth words (musts before the alpha release), speeding up the loading
! 21: of startup.fs, the documentation, adding readline and the foreign
! 22: language interface for C.
