Coffee, Tea, and Pastries


Technical Session Part II: Win32Forth Workshop - C.H. Ting

John Peters has done most of the work on the WinView editor which will not impact others working with Win32Forth. He hopes to add descriptions in the source files and supplement the internal comments. This will not change the compiled code, but simply illuminate the words that are already there.

Wil Baden is working on a Glossary Generator. This application extracts a list of all the words along with their stack comments and perhaps other comments and directions from each file to build a list of words called a Glossary. The first pass will undoubtedly uncover words that are not commented and others that may be in need of correction. Eventually we will end up with excellent documentation.

An important task will be to insure that no code is broken or incompatibilities are introduced.

Featured Talk: Floppy-based Forth Systems: Enth and ColorForth - C.H. Ting
Ting found an interesting Forth system bootable from floppy, like ColorForth called Enth. Please download it and try it. It boots up on all the computers Itried, and he thinks it might be a nice platform for Forth in Chinese. It can definitely be a platform for all the PC applications which do not need Windows and DOS.
