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).
6: You will probably find a Linux binary included in the package and the
7: configuration set up for Linux. If you want to install it on another
8: system, read INSTALL and I wish you good luck (Mail us if you have
11: To start the system just say `gforth'. This gives you a pretty barren
12: system. `gforth startup.fs' gives you most ANSI wordsets. If you miss
13: a word, just grep for it in *.fs.
15: If you want to work on gforth, mail me an encrypted UNIX password
16: (i.e., what you find in /etc/passwd). Tasks to be done can be found in
17: ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there, it's
18: ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are doing. The
19: most important tasks IMO are the configuartion script, the missing ANS
20: Forth words (musts before the alpha release), speeding up the loading
21: of startup.fs, the documentation, adding readline and the foreign
22: language interface for C.
