I am having issues with making forthstrap work.
The program is trying to access a memory address that doesn't belong to it. I think
the problem is with the calculation of the variable latest. This line in bootstrap.c is
where it is calculated:
*latest = target_ucell(pointer2cell(dict) + dicthead - sizeof(cell));
My question is is the variable latest suppose to hold the address of a memory location? I
can't access that value immediately after it is set.
I believe it should be the LFA of the current word being defined in the Forth dictionary.
Thanks. I figured out that the switch-arch script was the culprit. It was not identifying
my system correctly.
