RETRO 12

Screenshot

RETRO is a Forth dialect drawing influences from many sources. It uses some, but not all of Chuck Moore's newer ideas. It's clean, elegant, and tiny. It may not have many features, and it may not be particularly useful by itself, but it's easy to grasp and easily adapted to various uses.

This is the twelfth generation of the language and related programming environment. It is a fresh start and is not compatible with the previous RETRO 11.

Quick Start

git clone https://github.com/crcx/rx-nga.git
cd rx-nga
make
cd interfaces/listener
make
./listener
