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.

Examples of forth in a Sentence

  1. Clarence Darrow:

    Physical deformity, calls forth our charity. But the infinite misfortune of moral deformity calls forth nothing but hatred and vengeance.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Worry/Regret over nothing, if you've been worrying/regretting over anything before now. Because, worrying/regretting over and over again is as good as adding/rubbing salt to/on your own injury. i.e. each time you decide to worry/regret over anything, be it your past life, mistakes, failures, disappointments and things like that, you are unknowingly worsening the case/matter in question. Yes, of course, that's just what you will end up doing to your own self/the case/matter involved. Although, I do know that some issues/matters do seem regrettable like loss of job/opportunity. But regardless of that, rather than worrying/regretting over that/any other thing, pray about the/your case/issue. For surely, prayers can change your condition /case for the good. So, dare to worry/regret over nothing hence forth. Instead, pray over anything/everything.

  3. Homer:

  4. Robert F. Kennedy, South Africa, 1966:

    It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

  5. Marco Rubio:

    You'll see it's an eclectic collection of members of the United States Senate in favor of what we've just done here in the Senate, and that's to pass a bill to make Daylight Saving Saving Time permanent, just this past weekend, we all went through that biannual ritual of changing the clock back and forth and the disruption that comes with it. And one has to ask themselves after a while why do we keep doing it ?
