  • 07/16 11:06:20 Magdalene: @Oswaldo Forth was the first programming language I ever learned but hadn't heard about it in years. Why did you choose pForth?
  • 07/16 12:23:33 Oswaldo: @Magdalene I wanted a fairly simple sort of natural language interface and toyed around with logo, lisp, forth as ways of leveraging an existing system which was easy to build up and interpret "words" that might be easy for humans to remember like "delete" "search" "compose" "sleep"... Forth felt the most right. I started to design my own language which is a sort of delayed-interpretation forth so that RPN is not needed... aka "+" word wants two things on the stack so "1 + 1" will give "2" because the "+" will wait for the second number on the stack before evaluating.
