The Forth WebRing
WebRing was entire communities built around a single topic. "The Forth programming WebRing is for people who are interested in the Forth Programming language, originally invented by Mr. Charles Moore. Forth is a very powerful programming language that gives programmers down-to-the-metal control over the computer as well as the ability to abstract without limits." WebRing no longer exists. Archived webpage snapshots are presented here.
