CVS tags: HEAD
fixed bug in resize ("0 n resize" is now equivalent to "n allocate")
added primitives call-c and strerror
most primitives producing iors now produce error numbers derived from OS error
numbers (EAGAIN and its kin)
.error now prints OS error messages for OS-derived error numbers.
primitives working with ferror now call clearerr
added a bit of documentation to glocals.fs to satisfy TeX
added definition of CC to Makefile.in again
You need gcc version 2.0 or later to compile gforth.
configure has the following useful parameters:
--enable-force-reg Use explicit register declarations if they appear in
the machine.h file. This can cause a good speedup,
but also incorrect code with some gcc versions on
some processors (default disabled).
--enable-direct-threaded Force direct threading. This may not work on
some machines and may cause slowdown on others.
--enable-indirect-threaded Force indirect threading. This can cause a
slowdown on some machines.
--with-debug specifies option -g to compile with debug info (default)
--without-debug omits the -g switch and creates smaller images on
machines where strip has problems with gcc style
--help: tells you about other parameters.
If your make has trouble with the Makefile, "make gforth" might work.
If your installed gcc isn't called "gcc" (eg. called "gcc-2.6.1"), type
make GCC=<whatever you call your gcc>
Now you can check whether your shiny new Forth system works. Say
To make the documentation, type
make -k gforth.info gforth.ps html
If everything is allright, you may want to install gforth. Type
You may want to override the defaults for the directories. E.g., if
you want to install in the /gnu hierarchy instead of in the default
/usr/local hirarchy, say
make install prefix=/gnu
Alternatively, you can specify the prefixes with configure.
