Forth Tutorials

Recommended Posts

A bit off topic, but I found another vintage computer which runs Forth natively in it's console ROM. =)

Made a classic mistake....

And then I got this........

Disappointed, I re-read the reference card, changed to this:

 

: DRAW
XBAR 7 42 10 HCHAR

 

And then got the desired result. =)

Another difference between TF and TIF. In TIF, this would be

 

: DRAW 7 XBAR 10 42 HCHAR ;

 

Also, it looks like you changed the count from 10 to 20.

Ahh yes, I did... The box was off center, so I changed it to 20. =)

 

Thanks for the catch there.

 

Yea, I actually thought I'd found another misleading section of the TF documentation and I started writing a post about it... Before I sent it though, I re-read the ref card and discovered it was I who was mistaken. Next I'll be re-defining some standard character sets and working toward building my title screen.

It's a VERY interesting machine.... Too bad there's no support for it and no community. =)

 

Still though... would look VERY cool on my war-room desk. =) (once I get it set up, that is.)

I'm pretty sure I followed the TI BASIC conventions with HCHAR/VCHAR/GCHAR with respect to the order of the arguments. I figured if I was going to use the same name as the TI BASIC versions it would be a bit of an insult to change the order of the arguments! However, unlike TIB/XB the number of repeats is not optional!

 

Forth on!

I can't prove it but I swear that time moves faster in the the 12st 21st century. :)

 

Nice to see you back BTW.  Hope life is treating you well.

 

I have been recounting my fun and travails over on the Camel99 Forth topic.  I will have to give some thought to some meaningful content for here.

I started a Youtube channel and the plan was to create some video to explain how to use my system and I wanted to give some demonstrations of how to do some real things in Forth.

 

Maybe that can be my contribution over here.

Type much? 😁 I know you meant “21st century”—and, yes, it does. I think it might have a little to do with the fact that I have far less time left on this plane than I have spent!
