Topic: Colorforth


In the News (Fri 19 Apr 19)

  
  Re: Colorforth for Java?
Colorforth followed a whole generation later and was all about the user interface and internal compiler design.
Colorforth came in from the user interface and compiler design direction long after the virtual machine model was well established.
When you look at non-native colorforth hosted in non-Forth enviroments, on non-Forth hardware it is pretty clear that the people who are using the term colorforth are not all thinking that their intent was getting close to the target metal.

 Title: Colorforth for Java?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The inventor of colorforth said that colorforth is defined as putting informatoin in the white space in Forth.
Colorforth was not about removing layers as one might think if one thought it came from a conventional complex OS environment and thought that the reason it made the jump was to remove the excessive layering there.
I supoose colorforth is not much different than other Forths in that many Forth programmers will prefer to tinker with compiler, or the system, or make a port of the system themselves rather than use the Forth system for doing any useful apps.

 ColorForth Commentary: COLOR.ASM--Editor
ColorForth draws a keyboard map in the lower-right corner of the screen, so that the user can see what characters will appear as he types.
ColorForth also uses the tables to determine what character to generate when a particular key is pressed.
ColorForth recognizes only Set 1 scan codes in the range 0x10 through 0x39 (20o through 71o in octal), a range containing forty-one keys.

 ColorForth: Overview
ColorForth has two parts: a kernel written in x86 assembly language, and a series of one-kilobyte blocks of pre-parsed words, which the compiler in the kernel can compile into machine language.
ColorForth has exactly two tasks — "god," which updates the graphic output display, and "main," which handles commands from the keyboard.
The ColorForth keyboard is a variation on the Dvorak keyboard layout.

 Re: [off-topic] Stack vs. Register Machine Performance
Well, in colorforth the [ blah literal ] construct becomes simply stuff blah more stuff switching in and out of yellow inside of compilation (green) also compiles a literal if the yellow sequence left something on the stack.
But the color tokens and characters are compressed to less than a byte and literals are represented as numbers of some kind.
So colorforth would compile a single yellow character into a literal for you but its packed character representation.

 Re: Colorforth for Other People (was Re: ANN cfdos - EuroForth 2003edi
When I look at ColorForth, I'm not concerned with the surface details-- the so-called early binding, the character set, Huffman compression, keyboard layout, or the primitives Charles Moore chose.
For me, the message is that programmers can build their own language and runtime environment that is tuned to their work and the nature and capabilities of their hardware.
This will continue until people realize that ColorForth as an implementation simply doesn't matter-- what matters is the model ColorForth offers as a way to create a custom language and runtime environment.

 Title: Address Stack   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Another stack for addresses eliminates another level of stack juggling, and you don't have to be afraid of trashing it with certain words (for example, SWAP in colorforth trashes it, and its not even documented anywhere, i believe).
At least it isn't quite as bad as only having T as the addressing source as that is even more of a bottleneck.
Thus, you get > My impression is that you should think of x86 colorforth as an emulation of a full custom chip that Chuck is working on, and if he doesn't think that an address stack is worth implementing in his silicon then it won't be added to colorforth.
