Product Description

...And before the question comes up: it is Bites and not Bytes – the little bites from the Forth cake collected here. Have a Look Inside via the eBook, (above the picture), order a free sample (right hand side of the amazon page) - and you have access to everything you need to try it out yourself. get a feel for how Forth works. And see the more demanding chapters there . See at https://wiki.forth-ev.de/doku.php/en:projects:a-start-with-forth:start0. Forth has been around for many years – supposedly 2018 there will be a special event celebrating 50-YEARS-OF-FORTH, and we expect the inventor Charles Moore will be at EuroForth. Much info on the Internet about Forth. Too much information, too unstructured. I faced the same problem, when I came back to learning a bit more about Forth after 30 years. Over the years, I had flicked through the Starting Forth by Leo Brodie book I had been given by a customer as a Thank You. When I looked around, there was a lot of information around, mostly for more experienced people than I am in programming. Knowing MPE and Stephen Pelc at the time helped, but I could not find the documentation and hardware descriptions to be able to digest it in very small bites at my level. Over the last 4 years I got more into it, got to know many more people in the Forth community who helped. In this book, I want to collect the material I used for the software and hardware aspects and on the different platforms. Infection Area – There is a danger that you might like the concepts shown here – independent of other languages you use privately or in your work. Risk of Addiction – It seems that the way Forth works fits the “brain setup” of some people very well – reflecting how they work anyway. And there is the other group – they detest Forth. But it is probably like Marmite, very polarizing. Brain Massaging – Forth probably adds another way of solving problems – and this applies to ANY problem – independent but including software and language independent. Problem Solving – The very structured way, starting with very small bits and extending them into Words ( as they are called ), basically: defining new words, merging them into phrases, chapters and finally the book is ready ( your required solution of the specified problem ) Testing – as Forth is interactive, and even the compiling only takes seconds – often less – you stay very close to your problem,can try out options, test them until ready, document this part – sorry, no chance to go for lunch while the compiler takes over. In this area Forth works best and fastest from my understanding compared to other languages. Mixed Language Programming – MPE has introduced a product called Sockpuppet, where the MPE VFX is linked to other languages – at the moment mostly C – and all the testing advantages are accessible then via the Forth Add-On. Both groups can work independently in their best area of knowledge. Forth Bookshelf – Over the last 4 years I got to know many people in the Forth community, and some agreed to have their documents formatted and published as eBook first and later probably as print if there is interest. Get the information exposed to a wider audience. No Hardware - to get a general understanding of Forth, the investment is just the eBook – the examples can run on probably any PC – and some parts as well on tablet and smartphones – then using Gforth. On Controllers – As hardware person, I want to see LEDs flash, make sounds and drive RC-Servos - here the TI MSP430 is used and as well an ST ARM board. I must thank the many people that helped to make this book and the bookshelf possible and happen and here just a few names: Charles Moore, Stephen Pelc, Leon Wagner, Michael Kalus, Paul Bennett, Dirk Bruehl, Matthias Koch, Ulrich Hoffmann, Chen-Hanson Ting, Tim Hentlass, Leo Wong, Duncan Louttit, Bernd Paysan, and the Forth-ev.de Website, where many news could be published.
