nothing worth mentioning

    1: Gforth is a fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth
    2: language. It works nicely with the Emacs editor, offers some nice
    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).
    8: 
    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.
   12: 
   13: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail
   14: gforth-bugs@mips.complang.tuwien.ac.at if you have problems.  To start
   15: the system, just say `gforth' (after installing it).
   16: 
   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.

   23: On popular request, here are the meanings of unusual file extensions:
   24:

   26: *.fi	Forth image files
   27: *.fb	Forth blocks file
   28: *.i	C include files
   29: *.ds	documenation source
