The most important computer language of all time.
Forth: The Early Years
The fascinating story of how and why Forth came to be. It naturally follows the career of its inventor, Charles H. Moore starting at MIT in 1958 through to NRAO in 1971. Forth was conceived in a world of very limited computational resources. That is why it is so different from most modern, elephantine languages. Forth resembles a ribosome more than a city.
The classic introduction to FORTH. Using cartoon pictures, explanations, and examples, this book creates a gateway into the wonderful, fascinating world of FORTH.
Software engineering principles, applications, interviews, and of course more cartoons. This book will take you to the realm of the FORTH masters.
Programming a Problem Oriented Language: Forth
A nice go-through of the purpose, philosophy, and internal workings of Forth by its inventor.
eForth and Zen
eForth is one of the venerable pillars of Forth. It has been ported to a vast array of targets over many years. These include most hardware (CPU) cores, and several software (FPGA) cores. This enables code developed on other (possibly retired) targets to be easily applied to newer hardware. This is one of the truly great features of Forth:
it’s basically obsolescence-proof, and thus virtually immortal.
