If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em
I’ve had fun making the little DCPU emulator (past couple of posts: 1, 2), but sadly, I’ve had no time to make a Forth for it. But hey, Matt Hellige has already done it! I just took his GoForth and got it up and going. Just grab the image from here and load it up:
let image = File.ReadAllBytes @"..\..\goforth.img"for i in 0 .. 2 .. image.Length - 1 do memory.[i / 2] <- (uint16 image.[i]) <<< 8 ||| uint16 image.[i + 1]<br>cycle ()
Viola, a nice little interactive Forth!
Take it for a spin!
Now we need Notch to get around to spec’ing all the ship sensors and actuators!
