added some helper words
adapted other words to the changes
started documenting the intergration of Gforth in applications

    1: Gforth is a fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth
    2: language. It works nicely with the Emacs editor, offers some nice
    3: features such as input completion and history and a powerful locals
    4: facility, and it even has (the beginnings of) a manual. Gforth employs
    5: traditional implementation techniques: its inner innerpreter is
    6: indirect or direct threaded.  Gforth is distributed under the GNU
    7: General Public license (see COPYING).
    9: Gforth runs under Unix and DOS and should not be hard to port to other
   10: systems supported by GCC. This version has been tested successfully on
   11: Linux (for Intel), SunOS (SPARC) and Ultrix (MIPS).
   13: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail
   14: if you have problems.  To start
   15: the system, just say `gforth' (after installing it).
   17: You can find new versions of Gforth at and its mirrors
   18: or at
   21: or
   24: This site contains binary distributions of Gforth for some popular
   25: platforms.
   27: If you want to work on Gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found
   28: in ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there,
   29: it's ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are
   30: doing. The most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words,
   31: the documentation and the foreign language interface for C.
   33: On popular request, here are the meanings of unusual file extensions:
   35: *.fs	Forth stream source file
   36: *.fi	Forth image files
   37: *.fb	Forth blocks file
   38: *.i	C include files
   39: *.ds	documenation source
   40: *TAGS	etags files
   42: A number of Forth source files are included in this package that are
   43: not necessary for building Gforth. Not all of them are mentioned in
   44: the rest of the documentation, so here's a short overview:
   46: Add-ons:
   47: code.fs random.fs more.fs ansi.fs colorize.fs
   49: Utilities:
   50: etags.fs glosgen.fs filedump.fs
   52: Games:
   53: tt.fs sokoban.fs
   55: Test programs:
   56: tester.fs coretest.fs
   57: checkans.fs wordsets.fs
   59: Benchmarks:
   60: bubble.fs siev.fs matrix.fs fib.fs sieve.fs
   62: ANS Forth implementations of Gforth extensions:
   63: compat/*.fs other.fs
