Abstract or Description

Forth is both an extensible language and an interactive program development methodology. Originally developed for small embedded control mini- and micro-computers, Forth seems to have been implemented on every major processor manufactured. It has been used in a wide variety of applications, including spreadsheets, expert systems, multi-user databases, and distributed real time control systems.
