    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: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail us
    7: (anton@mips.complang.tuwien.ac.at,paysan@informatik.tu-muenchen.de) if
    8: you have problems.
    9: 
   10: To start the system just say `gforth'. This gives you a pretty barren
   11: system. `gforth startup.fs' gives you most ANSI wordsets. If you miss
   12: a word, just grep for it in *.fs.
   13: 
   14: If you want to work on gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found in
   15: ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there, it's
   16: ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are doing. The
   17: most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words (musts before
   18: the alpha release), the documentation and the foreign language
   19: interface for C.
   20: 
   21: On popular request, here are the meanings of unusual file extensions:
   22: 
   23: *.fs	Forth stream source file
   24: *.fi	Forth image files
   25: *.fb	Forth blocks file
   26: *.i	C include files
   27: *.ds	documenation source
   28: *TAGS	etags files
