	  patch by (Julian Fondren)

2000-11-14  Anton Ertl  <>

	* prim, prims2x.fs:
	prims2x now replaces "TAIL;" in the C code with appropriate code for
	   terminating the primitive
	Most conditional branches now use "TAIL;" to have two NEXTs
	   This brings performance back to the level before Nov 12th 2000

2000-11-13  Anton Ertl  <>

	* doc/gforth.ds,,, gforth.lsm, see.fs, startup.fs, stuff.fs:
	make bindist now makes sunsite-compliant package names
	updated lsm

	SEE now displays anonymous words as <###> (where ### is the xt)
	added CONST-DOES>

	* debug.fs:
	debugging can nest into defered words, as well as execute and perform

2000-11-12  Anton Ertl  <>

	* engine/forth.h, prim, prims2x.fs:
	prims2x.fs now generates the return stack stuff from the stack comment
	most references to rp were eliminated from prim
	  currently this comes with a performance penalty, because
	  conditional branches now use just one NEXT instead of one for the
	  branch and one for the fallthrough

	* prims2x.fs:
	generalized prefixing in prims2x.fs (prepare for stack prefixes)

2000-11-10  Anton Ertl  <>

	* engine/engine.c, engine/forth.h, engine/main.c,, prim, prims2x.fs:
	rewrote large parts of prims2x.fs to become more flexible (not restricted to
	  2 stacks, factored out common code for the stacks, etc.).
	Changes in other files to go with the prims2x.fs changes

2000-10-30  pazsan  <>

	Added new input handling (OO approach). Only available if capability
	new-input is true (so setting that to false in machpc.fs gets you the old
	input handling back).

2000-10-29  Anton Ertl  <>

	* see.fs: added names ID. and .ID for .NAME

2000-10-28  Anton Ertl  <>

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

	* wordlibs/unixlib.fs, wordlibs/unixlib.h, wordlibs/unixlib.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.

	* 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  jwilke  <>

	* 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

	colorize.fs -- fixed a bug that was introduced by a dictionary
	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

	kernel/require.fs -- glossary tweaks

1999-02-22  jwilke  <>

	* 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

	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.
