'Forth system for the PIC?'

Does anyone know of a FORTH compiler/interpreter for the PICs?

Last really big (ten man years) system I did for Grumman was in a Forth
derived language called ASYST--and I've had trouble programming in anything
else ever since.  Unfortunately the language died about the time the 486's
came into use.

I'm working on one. How can I keep you apprised of my progress?

Hi Keith and Kelly:

Kelly, I was one of the original four partners in Asyst and responsible for
its Forth-like architecture. It's good to know it had a positive effect on
you...

I've personally just started working with a PIC16F877 using the CCS compiler
and found the experience fun (so far) compared to writing C++/MFC code for
Windows. I been monitoring some Forth discussions/references and have a
bookmark to a page that lists several Forth/PIC links:
http://www.virtuaweb.com/picprog/links.html. I have not really played with
any of them yet.

Keith, please also keep me apprised of your Forth on the PIC plans - perhaps
I can help in some way.

I have written Forth for two microcontroller chips, the SX28AC and the
16C73. They work by treating the microcontrollers internal program area like
microcode. External SRAM, serial EEPROM, UART's, and other peripherals are
accessed via a multiplexed data-address buss. Writing it was lots of fun.
I'm in the process of writing code that handles low-level interrupts using
high-level Forth definitions so eventually every subsystem will be available
to the user. So far I hav'nt written a seperate compiler, just the
interpreter-compiler that's standard with any Forth system. I'm working on
it though...
