1999-12-03  crook  <>

	* kernel/io.fs, kernel/require.fs, kernel/vars.fs, kernel/comp.fs, kernel/cond.fs, kernel/int.fs, kernel/basics.fs:
	documentation tweaks.

	added support for generating html straight out of makeinfo (you need
	v4.0 for this, so it's commented out at the moment. Unlike texi2html,
	the html output from makeinfo is a single monolithic file; not too

	Bug-fix (Well, I think so..) If you do a "make" and then "su root" and
	"make install" and then return to non-root, the install would leave 2 files
	in the source tree that were owned by root - very impolite. The files were:
	-- (I solve this problem by deleting after an
	install. I think after an install refers to the install directory
	so this is a good thing to do anyway)
	-- prim.TAGS (because "make all" doesn't generate prim.TAGS, but
	"make install" does, therefore it ends up being owned by root. I couldn't
	see a clean way to fix this in the Makefile. I'd use "chmod --reference"
	to just fix up the protection but this option is GNU-specific. My backup
	solution was to add TAGS to the list in the doc: target, which seemed

	* ekey.fs:
	documentation tweaks plus bug-fix: the introduction of this file messed up
	the documentation of [ and OR in the manual. The reason is that the
	esc-sequences table contains words [ and OR and these were getting put into
	doc/doc.fd and then slipped into the .tex file in preference to the correct
	entries from doc/crossdoc.fd
	My less-than-ideal fix to this is to add "[IFNDEF] put-doc-entry" around
	the definition of the esc-sequences so that it gets omitted completely
	during a documentation build. The ideal fix would be for crossdoc.fs and
	the prim->index process to each support optional "prefix-" in the same
	way that doc/makedoc.fs does.

	* debug.fs:
	documentation tweaks plus a bug-fix: a recent change to this file meant
	that break: and break: were only available in the cross-compiler
	environment. I think that this *should* have been coded so that these
	two words were *never* available in the cross-compiler environment
	-- if I'm wrong, humble apologies (and please explain why..)

	Added some notes on how to install 'info' files correctly on a GNU/Linux

	* environ.fs, search.fs, stuff.fs, table.fs, vt100.fs, float.fs, prim, blocks.fs, code.fs:
	Fixed (my earlier) errors in the documentation of Standard search words
	in search.fs. Minor documentation tweaks in the other files.

	* doc/makedoc.fs, doc/gforth.ds, doc/.cvsignore:
	Fix minor typos in manual. Added chapter 13 to .cvsignore. Fixed incorrect
	comments in makedoc.fs and added a couple of factors to the code.

	Moved netlib stuff to extra directory, because I need a configure
	script for it.

	* wordlibs/dlerror.fs, wordlibs/dlerror.h, wordlibs/dlerror.pri:

	* kernel/special.fs, kernel/vars.fs, kernel/basics.fs, kernel/comp.fs, kernel/int.fs, doc/gforth.ds, doc/.cvsignore, README, float.fs, prim:
	Major re-write of manual sections concerning text interpreter and
	defining words. Much fine-tuning of other sections. The manual is
	``nearly finished'' -- at least, all the major pieces of work that
	I envisaged for the first mods (which were only going to take a
	couple of weeks...). The manual has grown from 127 pages to 192
	which is good news in terms of content but bad news in terms of the
	time it takes to print out on my HP550C DeskJet.

	Other changes are just tweaks to glossary entries.

1999-05-05  Jens Wilke  <>

	* kernel/comp.fs: Small changes for plug-in support.

	* kernel/special.fs:

	* kernel/doers.fs: Made debug output optional.

	* cross.fs: Added nice debugging flags support.

	* arch/generic/machine.h, prim, cross.fs:
	new compile flag: stantardthreading

	* kernel/io.fs: deleted doubled definitions of (key) and (key?)

	* kernel/tools.fs:
	changed include statement ../ to ./.. because we want to include relative
	to the directory, this file is in.

	* kernel/vars.fs: cell is only defeined if it doesnt exist

	* kernel/int.fs:
	head? is now optional, depending on whether forthstart exists.

1999-05-04  Jens Wilke  <>

	* engine/threaded.h:
	CFA_NEXT is now defined by the threading scheme and not when GETCFA is
	missing. With Gforth-debug we might have GETCFA defined and a threading
	with cfa alive.
	With this fix I managed to compile gforth on a system that claims it is
	a 386 (i386-solaris, BTW: it is a PII...). But gforth crashes
	(direct threaded scheme 10) at the moment.
	Perhaps Anton should take a look on it?!

	blocks.fs -- fixed a bug in UPDATED? and added glossary entries for all

	structure change between 0.3.0 and 0.4.0 (I think.. it used to work
	on 0.3.0 and I compared the color WORDS with the normal WORDS and found
	some dirrerences

	doc/gforth.1 -- minor tweaks to man page. I now think that I'd like to
	be able to auto-generate the man page from what is now Chapter 3 of the
	manual. That's in line with GNU's general attitude towards man pages..

	doc/gforth.ds -- added stuff about blocks, revamped Chapter 3 and other
	miscellaneous changes.

	kernel/comp.fs -- glossary tweaks

	On sun linker exits with "fatal signal 6"...

	* prims2x.fs: Changes in file including.

	Used for word libraries, if current working directory is not gforth root.

	* engine/forth.h, engine/main.c, engine/signals.c, errors.fs:
	On platforms that support the SA_SIGINFO flag (Linux is not quite
	  there yet), there are now new signal handlers that perform more
	  precise error reporting (in particular for SIGFPE and SIGSEGV).
	Minor fixes.

	* engine/signals.c: started working on better signal handlers

	* engine/io.c, engine/main.c, engine/signals.c,, engine/,
	moved signal handling into a new file signals.c
	minor changes to window size handling

1999-02-24  Jens Wilke  <>

1999-02-22  Jens Wilke  <>

	* arch/misc/mach.fs: fix bits/byte -> bits/char

	* cross.fs:
	makekernel works now with setup-target and region interface.
	bugfix in setup-target

	* kernel/kernel.fs, kernel/main.fs:
	Made includes in kernel/kernel.fs and kernel/main.fs relative to there
	file positions.

	* cross.fs:
	introduced bits/byte. For this naming the address unit is per
	definition a byte. If bits/byte is not explicitly set, 8 is assumed.
	>address works now with bits/byte and translates between target
	address units and the hosts' one.
	In this state this will never work with host address unit size different
	than 8 bits.
	Step up translation (from 8 to 16 bits address unit size) will only work
	with enormous care because "chars" in cross behaves not like "chars" in the
	target. Any pre-calculation of offsets that is compiled in litarally
	will fail!
	Better solution: Emulate target address-unit size in cross, ugh!

	* mach32l.fs, mach64b.fs, mach64l.fs, mach16b.fs, mach16l.fs, mach32b.fs, cross.fs:
	Replaces bits/byte by bits/char. EC-targets currently broken.

	gforth-ditc is now installed with "make install"
	bugfix in print-backtrace
	rewrote number output: now uses a fixed buffer HOLDBUF; added <<# and
		#>> to deal with nested number output (e.g., AT-XY), and fixed
		ud.r and d.r (and thus all the "." words) and DUMP to use
		them.  Other words using <# still have to be fixed.
	removed COMPACT// and its use; it did not work, and anyway, it's a bad
		idea for Cygwin, Domain/OS (Apollo's OS), and possibly other OSs.

	* arch/386/machine.h, arch/m68k/machine.h, cross.fs, prim:
	bugfix in m68k/machine.h and 386/machine.h
	doc changes in cross.fs and prim

1999-02-20  Bernd Paysan  <>

	New "docclean" target for makefile (removes glossary dependencies when
	rebuilding documentation). Changes to .fs files and prim are restricted
	to glossary (\G) additions for the documentation; this has necessitated
	the addition of new white-space in places to stop the \G stuff from
	obscuring the code. Many additions to doc/gforth.ds - new sections
	added, a few things moved and some sections re-written slightly. There
	are a set of things to tidy up before this rev. is suitable for
	release, and those will be my highest priority. I have also used
	"@comment TODO" to highlight other sections I plan to work on, and
	added a set of comments at the start to indicate other things I plan
	to modify in the medium-term.
