Firth ----- Firth is an experimental evolution of Forth geared around the following concepts: * 2 stack w/ registers architecture on a modern 64bit x86_64 CPU * direct low level system interface, not requiring any C code * object oriented memory usage with message passing via registers * one process per object threaded model * message passing as flow control * one concurrent process per processor core (vcpu) * just in time compilation for everything (no interpreter) * prototypal inheritance with deep copy semantics * virtual machine as the base object * persistent system images The goal of Firth is to build a modern Forth that adopts a Erlang meets Self process/object model. While initially targeting 64bit x86_64, it should be retargetable with minimal effort to other processors, such as ARM. Building -------- To build: make This will produce a firth binary and a image file. Running ------- To run: ./f This will run firth on the image file in a raw tty. Contributing ------------ Firth is being released under a BSD 3-clause license. See the COPYING file for details.
