Coffee, Tea, Bagels, and Pastries


Forth-based Browser - CH Ting

"I will talk about FML, a Forth-based browser or XML clone to format web pages. It was developed by Mr. C.S. Yap at eForth Technology to control displays in an embedded system. I got the full suite of code and examples. I hope that I will make some sense of it and give a coherent presentation at the SVFIG meeting."

"The tags inserted into text messages contain Forth words and definitions. These tags are interpreted by an ANSI Forth browser, which produces formatted text and many GUI objects in a resizable window. Very interesting and very powerful."


Lunch - on your own
