RE: Concerning Forth<p>The Proc5 Fourth compiler for the Macintosh is not yet available. Mostly due to compiling compiler type of bugs. The most recent version won't gobble IFEQ ELSE THEN statements and the infinite nested DO LOOP. It did ,however, output correct code for the 60 or so predefined functions; and somehow managed to work with one Re-enterant ( ). The most notible error at ths point is it skips over the ORG statment and the data structure definitions. It has a complete library of 68000 trap codes for a system 6.1 screen and a dozen or so pre-defined variable types - which can be used as globals for a <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">code:</font><hr><pre> :p ROC ... proc; </pre><hr></blockquote> type of record. The biggest problem is cost recovery given the 4 month Intel copy rate for an interpreted version of the compiler.<p>[ October 15, 2003: Message edited by: Barkley Hunter ]</p>
