I am using the COLDFIRE processor, so I called it COLDFORTH ( not very
imaginative), 90+% is written in FORTH, assembler is restricted to the base word
set, with a little in the scheduler, which is pre-emtive. All the interrupt code is
in FORTH also.
It is a subroutine threaded FORTH ( needed if your going to write as much as
possible in FORTH).
The project was started because MOTOROLA stopped producing the 68K, our original OS
was mostly written in Assembler I didn't want to make that mistake again.
It is a self reproducing system so it is built using a cross compiler, in the long
term I plan on porting the xcompiler to G forth.
I intend to put up a WEB site and CVS server next month, you can currently look at
the code with a web browser at: 18.104.22.168
