I am new to the project and had a few questions. I have browsed
around the OpenBIOS web site, to get an idea of what is going on
and where its at. Looking at the 'progress' page I see that the
work currently seems to be focused on the Forth core engine and
the Forth base dictionary. As to the other projects there is no
information, other than being at 0%. Has any one already
suggested a direction for these projects and what they
expect from them? For example, the user interface in all
open firmware solutions I have seen so far (Sun boxes
and Apple Macs, with new world ROM) all have a command
line interface. Would it be conceivable to add a PC BIOS
style GUI, in addition to the CLI for 'high-level' configuration.
In addition, while doing a search on the web I came up with
the following documents that might be useful - I hope none
of them cause issue:
From the Apple site:
- bottom: "Forth for Open Firmware Basics" tutorial
presentations. Other stuff may be of interest.
- some references to open firmware
