I converted the program you mention above to tape load on real zeddy while the main application loads fine I couldn't get the editor screens to load this way either, suggesting a fault in the P files.mrtinb wrote:Sounds like Artic Computing Forth. I've tried it and can't load the editor either. (I've tried both with EightyOne, ZXsp and ZesaruX.)Moggy wrote:ZX81 fig forth.
I found this to be SLOOOOW , no faster than basic, a tiresome tape loading of editor screens(one only at any one time) which I could never get to work etc mean a pass on this for me.
I'm thinking about typing (or load to RAM) the editor from Artic Computing into Toddy Forth (which misses an editor).
(And I think I need to find an implementation of the keyword SEE, which is missing as well.)
I don't think you will find a ZX81 version of the primitive SEE, as such a decompiler word would by design take up a lot of valuable ram/rom space on a very limited memory computer plus I wouldn't see a great need for something to decompile words you have already created and therefore already know their meaning.
If it is to understand words created by others then perhaps the following may be of more value..
