This section presents the structure package that comes with Gforth. A version of the package implemented in ANS Forth is available in compat/struct.fs. This package was inspired by a posting on comp.lang.forth in 1989 (unfortunately I don't remember, by whom; possibly John Hayes). A version of this section has been published in M. Anton Ertl, Yet Another Forth Structures Package, Forth Dimensions 19(3), pages 13–16. Marcel Hendrix provided helpful comments.
