F2P Forth

Post by jimmat » Wed Jul 16, 2003 10:53 pm

A few years ago I downloaded a program called F2P, Forth to Pic compiler, V1.0 written by Michael Josefsson in 1997. To use it you wrote source code in Forth and F2P compiled it to code that you assembled with MPASM. I don't do a lot of PIC programming but I used F2P a bit with a 16F84 and I thought it was great. I recently tried looking for a newer version but I can't find anything on the web except a reference to a Russian site and a mention in a Forth FAQ. Does anyone know if there is a later version? Has anyone else used it?

There is an article in the July issue of Nuts & Volts about that programming language and some web sites for free downloads.

You can find a tutorial about using an open source PIC Forth (not mine) at http://tutor.al-williams.com. The compiler runs in GnuForth and cross compiles for the PIC -- very slick.
