Annotation of gforth/README, revision 1.8
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
! 3: features such as a powerful locals facility, and even has (the
! 4: beginnings of) a manual. Gforth employs traditional implementation
! 5: techniques: its inner innerpreter is indirect or direct threaded.
! 6: Gforth is distributed under the GNU General Public license (see
! 7: COPYING).
! 9: Gforth runs under Unix and DOS and should not be hard to port to other
! 10: systems supported by GCC. This version has been tested on Linux (for
! 11: Intel), SunOS (SPARC), Ultrix (MIPS) before release.

1.7 anton 13: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail
14: email@example.com if you have problems. To start

1.7 anton 17: If you want to work on Gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found
18: in ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there,
19: it's ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are
20: doing. The most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words,
21: the documentation and the foreign language interface for C.
