    I looked at all the Forth code on Git, and gee – half of it doesn’t work, there is no documentation, … the lack of the commercial aspect has caused a serious deterioration of the public face of Forth, although I do believe people with well maintained code do exist, they do not share because of poor monetization.

    I recall when many Forths were available in commercial packages, all well documented and packaged. So thanks for maintaining this tradition, with code
    that works, and is nicely documented. For personal users it would be nice if this were a little less expensive … for many of us would like to purchase this to support Forth Inc.



    For me it’s the SwiftX that gets a little spendy if you need to work with various boards, but the license for SwiftForth seems pretty fair these days. It only costs about as much as 5 or 6 large pizzas, and gives you a lot less heart burn.
