Freebase

  1. Forth

    Forth is an imperative stack-based computer programming language and programming environment. Language features include structured programming, reflection, concatenative programming and extensibility. Although not an acronym, the language's name is sometimes spelled with all capital letters as FORTH, following the customary usage during its earlier years. A procedural programming language without type checking, Forth features both interactive execution of commands and the ability to compile sequences of commands for later execution. Some Forth implementations compile threaded code, but many implementations today generate optimized machine code like other language compilers. Although not as popular as other programming systems, Forth has enough support to keep several language vendors and contractors in business. Forth is currently used in boot loaders such as Open Firmware, space applications, and other embedded systems. Gforth, an implementation of Forth by the GNU Project, is actively maintained, with its most recent release on February 25, 2013. The 1994 standard is currently undergoing revision, provisionally titled Forth 200x.
