volksFORTH

volksFORTH is a 16-bit Forth System produced by the German Forth Gesellschaft e.V. The main development of this system was done between 1985 and 1989. The volksFORTH Project has been revived in 2005 with the goal to produce a manageable Forth system for computers/controllers with restricted resources. The current version of VolksForth is 3.81. The work on Version 3.90 has started.

At this stage volksFORTH is available for these systems:

  • volksFORTH MS-DOS (Intel x86 Architecture i8086-ia64)
  • volksFORTH 6502 (Commodore 64, Commodore Plus 4, Commodore PET, Apple 1, Apple II/IIe/IIc (ProDOS), Atari XL/XE)
  • volksFORTH Z80 (CP/M, Amstrad CPC)
  • volksFORTH 68000 (Atari ST)
