Sfera

Sfera is a library under development for SuperForth, the Forth-83 system written by Gerry Jackson for Sinclair QL, and published by Digital Precision in 1985.

"Sfera" stands for "SuperForth Enhancements, Resources and Addons".

The development is done on a homemade portable Raspberry Pi 2 with the Raspbian operating system and SMSQmulator.

User configuration

The boot_fs file has a user configuration section at the end, where default devices, windows and paths are configured.

QL devices

By default device dev4 is configured as path 1 for Forth sources, and therefore it must be configured in your QDOS or SMSQ/E system this way:

dev_use 4, "path_to_sfera_"

Also device nfa4, which is specific of the SMSQmulator emulator, is used as path 3.
