    1: This is the current state (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).
    5: 
    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).
   10: 
   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.
   14: 
   15: If you want to work on gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found
   16: in ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there,
   17: it's ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are
   18: doing. The most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words
   19: (musts before the alpha release), the documentation and the foreign
   20: language interface for C.
   21: 
   22: On popular request, here are the meanings of unusual file extensions:
   23: 
   24: *.fs	Forth stream source file
   25: *.fi	Forth image files
   26: *.fb	Forth blocks file
   27: *.i	C include files
   28: *.ds	documenation source
   29: *TAGS	etags files
