General Development Forth has been a recognized programming language since the 1970's. ColorForth is a redesign of this classic language for the 21st century. It also draws upon a 20-year evolution of minimal instruction-set microprocessors. Now implemented on modern PCs, it runs stand-alone without an operating system. Applications are recompiled from source with a simple optimizing compiler.

What happens to computercowboys ?
by vlad on Wed 13th Nov 2002 00:53 UTC

AFAIK Chuck's company was called "computercowboys" and he was working on FP32 last time I saw news about him.
FP21 was very impressive design too - 21 bit registers was a real shock for unprepared. Does anyone know what happened ?

To datako:
Forth is used to boot Suns. It's called OpenBoot. If you drop to "ok" prompt you can play with it there.
