Transform your NX console into a programmable rpn calculator, using a tiny floating-point dialect of the concatenative stack-based programming language Forth.

Type "vlist" for a list of the built-in words.

For more information about programming in Forth see "Starting Forth" by Leo Brodie, available in html and pdf formats at https://www.forth.com/starting-forth/

(Many of the features described in the book are not supported by NX Forth!)

So, no ability to define words and such, just strictly a calculator?

Sounds interesting... in its day it would have been fun to play with :)

SUB is kinda of a better version of this "define your own words" concept I think...

I own a HP scientific programmable calculator... that was fun to use :)

Oh wow, it's an antique already :0

Looks like the original Forth is powerful enough to program anything you like (even an OS). But this interpreter just executes single lines, so you cannot do a lot more than with a calculator.

Well, I'm glad you made this :) I copied the PDF manual, (huge) and it's a fun read :)

This project you made here is fun too :)


Timo 2018-11-04 16:29

It’s not from me, see credits, I posted it for him. He may create an account later.

Ah...

Well, I'm glad it's here :)
