Re: FIF. Another FORTH.

Rest assured when the final version is released it will be firmly ensconced in my Zeddy Forth toolbox. As for the 4 bit ALU I find Ken Shirrff's blogs on the Z80 informative, the ALU bit can be found here if you haven't seen it already. http://www.righto.com/2013/09/the-z-80-has-4-bit-alu-heres-how-...

Re: FIF. Another FORTH.

Many thanks for your kind words Alan much appreciated. :D Now the Forth bit! Took me a while and many crashes later ( I blame the meds) I finally got the feel of it and compiled, saved and loaded a few screens. Having come from Toddy Forth with its remarkably easy save and load functions it seemed o...

Re: FIF. Another FORTH.

The pill gobbling is down to severe pancreatitis and whilst at first things are mellow it quickly turns into confusion followed by the famous Tramadol headache. To be honest the pursuit and getting to grips with Forth is about the only thing getting me through the day, albeit through a miasma of hea...

Re: FIF. Another FORTH.

Must have been all the medication I've been on as I have now got DPL to work as required and most excellent it is too. :D Basically It's needed in a definition that correctly scales individually numbers entered on the stack rather than the fixed scaling used in formatted numbers and also allows mixe...

Re: FIF. Another FORTH.

SIGN seems to be missing completely from latest version or am I missing something after too much Tramadol? Defined SIGN as per the book and tried the books formatting example using DPL but got nonsense and when I try your example of 123.4567 DPL . I get 17416?! 123.4567 DPL @ D. will return "4 12345...

Re: FIF. Another FORTH.

I think we can all agree that some Figforth has crept into Winfield's definitions as SIGN and now DPL which is curious as in the preface he thanks both Charles Moore and Elizabeth Rather for the Forth79 dialect used in the book, which would suggest and reinforces in my mind at least how fragmented F...

Re: FIF. Another FORTH.

The book I'm using is The complete Forth by Alan Winfield which can be found here... http://jupiter-ace.co.uk/BookReader/br-isbn-0905104226-complete-forth.html#page/1/mode/1up I would ask both of you do your Forths include the variable DPL (section 8-1 of the book) which apparently is used to count...
