I have recently been fiddling around with a DIY car computer, a
MegaSquirt II (http://www.megamanual.com/index.html if you are
interested). It is based on a 25MHz Freescale/Motorola M68HCS12 chip
endowed with 128k flash and 4k RAM.
The open-source firmware is written in mixed C and assembly language
and I have contributed a small amount of assembly code to improve some
of the interpolation going on in there. This brought on a bit of
nostalgia since it was quite similar to M6809 code, one of the first
processors I became intimate with.
Anyhow, to the point. While I have never *coded* Forth...forth in forth

HERESY in the Forth community! Imagine... NOT coming up with
your own CASE statement or local variable implemetation? Use
OTHER PEOPLES TOOLS? Yuccch!
One thing you can count on in the Forth community... try
to establish a standard ANYTHING, and all that will happen
is others will come up with their own implementation, defeating
the purpose of standardization.
Why is this?
I mean, I'm usually quite happy to program in other languages without
building my own interpreter or compiler. For instance with Ruby, the
only time I even considered it's implementation was when I was
learning how it's class structure was organised, and that was only
because some of my references talked about the internals.
Now with Forth, it seems like every step along the way makes me think
about writing my own implementation! A couple of months back I
designed (in outline) a prototype based OOPS for forth, and before I
could finish it I was planning how to write a ...One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

I'm still trying to get my head around the Free Software concept. If I
buy a Ford and it uses GPL'd code in it's engine controller, Ford is
required to publish the source code to it's engine controller. I'm
guessing that Ford would rather not have the GM and Chevy engineers
poring over their code so they would buy a license to the otherwise
GPL'd code. No problem.
Something like CDDL allows commercial developers to keep one foot in

...Gforth-EC, the underappreciated embedded Forth
I've been having a look at Gforth-EC lately, that's the embedded
cross-compiled Forth support that has been included with Gforth all the
time, but as it's well hidden and pretty undocumented, I guess most
people wouldn't have noticed it.
Now it turns out it only takes a few commands to generate a usable 8086
gforth-ec executable, running in dosbox (i.e. emulated under Linux):
From the Gforth source directory, run:

And voila, it prints the standard Gforth welcom...Starting with forth... personal embedded projects
When I was but a young lad, with my first computer (a Sinclair ZX-81) I
purchased a Forth cassette (ZX-FORTH). Unfortunately, my teenaged mind
at the time wasn't quite ready for how different Forth was from BASIC,
and I gave up after a while. (In my defense, the manual was terrible).
Now, some thirty-mumble years later, with a long career of sysadminning,
and learning languages behind me, I've decided to re-visit my earlier
failing, and pick up where I left off, learning Forth.
I've got a couple of projects in mind (the first one would be some

I'm very pleased to announce some additions to the Forth Scientific
Library at http://www.taygeta.com/fsl/sciforth.html
David N. Williams' set of words for complex numbers and functions has been
added as Algorithm #60. I strongly suggest that anyone writing code with
complex arithmetic follow his conventions and standards. They provide a
clear and cohesive vocabulary, a good de-facto standard IMHO.
A file with code (by DNW) for testing complex numbers and functions has
also been added as an Auxiliary file.
Another addition to the set of Auxiliary files is an up-to-date version of..."permission denied" happening too often
I've got Ruby scripts that have been working fine for years now. But,
every now and then, one of my scripts errors out with a "permission
denied" error. This is very frustrating. Usually, it involves moving a
file to either a sister directory or a subdirectory. And, like I said,
99% of the time it works fine. Has anyone else experienced this? It kind
of scares me because it's only been happening for me with Ruby. It
didn't use to happen with Perl, and, believe, I don't want to go back to

...Embedding Python in an embedded system
I'm looking at embedding python in a little embedded system. The device
(a linksys wrt54g router, popular hack object since it runs linux), has
limited resources. Just 4MB flash and 16MB memory.
I'm interested in Python because I need to be more agile with developing
an application for this platform. Currently I am using C++ but it takes
just too much time to develop/debug code.
Does anyone have experience doing something like this?

Right now, what I'm interested in is niche RPGMaker-type games on Android.
I've done some of this work already in Java, including creating a map editor
(on Android) and a playable demo, using First Seed Material
(http://www.tekepon.net/fsm/index.php) assets I gave up on my last
alternatives to Java when I found Terminal IDE, which allowed me to move code
all the way from Java source to installable .apks on the device itself.
But now there is a Forth system on Android!
I don't know if it'll have on-device turnkey facilities soon or ever, or how
deployment will otherwise work. I've some familiarity with Java API, the
Android way of XML-specified interfaces and the like (fortunately, games mostly
ignore that part of Android), but JNI and friends is still a mystery to me.
