Gforth is a project to develop an implementation for ANSI Forth. It is part of the GNU Project.
Gforth's goals can be split into several subgoals:
The Gforth project was started in mid-1992 by Bernd Paysan and Anton Ertl. Gforth descends from bigFORTH and fig-Forth Gforth uses GCC to compile a fast direct or indirect threaded Forth; Gforth is fully ANSI FORTH compliant.
