1: Gforth is a fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth
2: language. This represents the present state of the Gforth project
3: whose goal is the development of a standard implementation model for
4: ANS Forth. Gforth supports indirect threading on every machine
5: supported by GCC, and direct threading on several popular
6: architectures. Gforth is distributed under the GNU General Public
7: license (see COPYING).
9: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail
10: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have problems. To start
11: the system, just say `gforth' (after installing it).
13: If you want to work on Gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found
14: in ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there,
15: it's ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are
16: doing. The most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words,
17: the documentation and the foreign language interface for C.
19: On popular request, here are the meanings of unusual file extensions:
21: *.fs Forth stream source file
22: *.fi Forth image files
23: *.fb Forth blocks file
24: *.i C include files
25: *.ds documenation source
