Gforth's goals can be split into several subgoals:
- Gforth should conform to the ANSI Forth standard.
- It should be a model, i.e. it should define all implementation dependencies.
- It should become standard, i.e. widely accepted and used. This goal is the most difficult one.
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.
