Welcome to Project Forth Works
What this project is all about ...
Forth would benefit greatly from an active community sharing sources and solutions. But our problem lies in the saying: When you have seen one Forth, you have seen one Forth.
With this project we would like to embrace our differences. And start sharing, despite having all the different Forths-dialects.
The core idea of this project is to use a simple, generic version of Forth to spread ideas, algorithms, protocols, applications and hardware drivers. This generic version of Forth guarantees that it can be understood and used by (almost) everybody in the Forth-community.

Contributing to the Project Forth Works is as easy as 1,2,3. All pages are written in Wiki Syntax format and editable once you register with the web site. You can use the playground to make your Wiki experiments.
You can contribute in different ways, your choice:
Leave you remark at the discussion box below.
Add a new implementation at the bottom of any existing idea. That's easy:
You just edit the page using the
Edit button at the end of the page or using the pencil icon to the right of the document.
Then you just add your implemtation putting it in between
Save the page. That's it.
Add a new idea:
Give it a name here in this document (e.g. in the category section above). Save this document.
Follow the red link of your new idea.
Create it using the Pencil to the right of the new document.
Adapt the pre-filled template that assists you in structure.
Preview and edit, repeat until satisfied. (You can save interim versions and continue editing later.)
Save your new idea document. That's it.
