Brouhabouha Forth

I've prepared a repackaged distribution of Brouhabouha Forth, a Forth-94 Forth system for QL, written by Ewald Pfau in 1991-1994. Main changes: The QDOS header of the executable was lost, and it has been restored. The documentation has been edited and manually converted to Asciidoctor (then automati...

Re: Email list about Forth on Sinclair computers

I've just seen this and those numbers would seem about right. I presume you obtained those numbers via a disassembler. If so could you send the disassembly of the machine code to me or make it available somewhere so I can compare it with the assembler source on GitHub. Apart from different register...

Re: SMSQmulator and Raspberry Pi 2

I've installed Oracle Java 8 (it's in the non-free component of the Raspbian repositories), and SMSQmulator for Java 8 runs 200% faster than the version for Java 7 running on open-jdk 7. I'm using Raspberry Pi 2. I wonder if this makes SMSQmulator usable on Raspberry Pi 1. Anybody can try?

QL SuperForth descendant on GitHub

Gerry Jackson has put on GitHub the sources of his almost finished QL SuperForth cross-compiler, which he started based on the original SuperForth. Most of the sources are common, so it's most useful to understand SuperForth. https://github.com/gerryjackson/QL-SuperForth Probably also the sources of...

Re: Email list about Forth on Sinclair computers

>...source code of the meta-compiler I mentioned on GitHub. Look forward to that. https://github.com/gerryjackson/QL-SuperForth I only had a passing interest in Forth until a few years ago when I started to understand it from the ground up by looking at how others had implemented it from scratch. V...

Re: Forth source converters, now also for QL SuperForth

I do also use PI, mine is version 1 model B which is mono-core. I read new PI 2 is quad-core, I wonder how much faster I can get with PI 2? I used RPi 1 B for a long time, as my main computer, but one day its HDMI output ceased working. Then I ordered a RPi 2. The speed increase is c. 6x. For examp...

Re: Email list about Forth on Sinclair computers

I'll have a look again now I've finished PNG decoder (horrid format - makes JPEG and GIF look like model of good design, even though they preceded PNG :? ) We are discussing the disassembling of some SuperForth code words in the email list. So far I've seen nothing strange. In fact I'm considering ...
