HTM Visit retroforth.org (http) ______________________________________________________________________ RETRO is a clean, elegant, and pragmatic dialect of Forth. It provides a simple alternative for those willing to make a break from legacy systems. The language draws influences from many sources including traditional Forth systems, cmForth, colorForth, Factor, and Parable. It was designed to be easy to grasp and adapt to specific uses. The basic language is very portable. It runs on a tiny virtual machine (Nga), which is written in C. There are multiple interface options, the main one (rre) is buildable with just the standard C compiler and libraries on most systems. ______________________________________________________________________ Source Code These include source code, documentation, and examples.

These run the same image and virtual machine as all of the other systems, but add a custom editor-centric interface and some additional words to make them more useful on their respective platforms.
