110232 FORTH: Programming System for the PDP-11 Version: October
Submitted by: Martin S. Ewing, California Institute of Technology,
Source Language: MACRO-11 Memory Required: 8K (16K + for assembly)
Keywords: Compilers, Programming Languages, Scientific Applications
Abstract: FORTH is a self-contained programming system that has
become popular in scientific applications requiring
interactive control and data acquisition. The system
supports a high-level structured language using reverse
Polish notation; it contains an incremental compiler, an
assembler, and a text editor. RT-11 FORTH maintains any
number of RT-11 disk files. Application packages are
included for an extended text editor and floating-point
Notes: FORTH will use EAE, EIS, or FIS options if present. A
companion DECsystem-10 version is available on DECUS No.
10L004. FORTH is also included on the Symposium Tape
from the RSX SIG, Fall 1980, San Diego Tape, DECUS No.
Assoc. Documentation: Users must obtain "Caltech FORTH Manual" (second
edition) from the Caltech Bookstore, California
Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California 91125.
Restrictions: This version of FORTH does not have stand-alone
capability. DECUS does not, at this time, have a version
of FORTH that runs under RSX.
Media (Service Charge Code): One RX01 Diskette (KA) Format: RT-11,
