aha is a a new Forth environment for F21 that combines some of Chuck Moore's ideas in cmForth, OK, Machine Forth, and Color Forth with new ideas from Jeff Fox. Small and fast, aha uses Forth source compressed about five times and has amazing compile times.

ENTH and Flux are stand alone floppy boot Forths for the Pentium from Sean Pringle. ENTH is a conventional mostly ANS Forth. Flux is a portable Color Forth that uses one aha technique to compress source and eliminate dictionary search at compile time.
