Forth for Linux?

Forth for Linux?

Post by Rick Harms » Mon, 13 Feb 1995 01:31:44



I would like to learn Forth.  Don't ask why.

However, I would like to remain in the Linux environment,
at least for the developement stages of any Forth application.

Has anybody developed a Forth interpretor for Linux?

Yes, I've checked ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/devel.

Thanks,

Rick

I've been messing a little with the 'tile forth', which I found in
prep.ai.mit.edu:/pub/gnu
...

The compiling went almost fine under Linux, except for one definition
of 'exception' in the source code -- It was defined somewhere in a
header-file as well.  The answer I found was to change it so it used
(after preprocessing), forth_exception instead.

Some of the example problems didn't seem to work, and it may be
because I didn't quite make the changes correctly.

If you can't get it working, drop me a line.. I'll be compiling it
again sometime soon.  I had a catastrophic operator error a few weeks
ago.

But you did not check ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu

   ... I would like to learn Forth.  Don't ask why.

   However, I would like to remain in the Linux environment,

The following is an old comp.lang.forth FAQ entry :-

    Dirk Zoller has implemented an dpANS-5 compatible Forth in ANSI-C.
    All the code is under the GNU General Public Licence.
    It has been tested on IBM-PC running Linux, IBM RS6000 running AIX
    3.x and HP 9000 series 700 running HP-UX.  Should be portable to
    any machine with a true ANSI-C compiler having a straight 32-bit
    architecture (i.e. may work under OS/2, Windows, Atari, Amiga, but
    definitely not MS-DOS).  At time of writing [1993-08-21], the
    system is still an early release, so the author would appreciate

    The system can be obtained by anonymous ftp from
    <roxi.rz.fht-mannheim.de> where the latest version is updated at
    least weekly in the file /pub/unix/languages/pfe-?.?.?.tar.Z

 
 
 

1. forth under linux

Hi,
  I've been playing with Dirk Zoller's forth for a short time.  I haven't
used forth in a few years and after a bit discovered that the disk memory
functions that I used to work with didn't work.  ( list, l, t...)
My question is can anyone point to a port of forth that contains these
features or point to a manual for Dirk's?

thanks,

Robert Megee
