Forth cross compiler for tiny microcontrollers
There haven't been much progress lately. The basics are there, but more features and polish are needed.
I hvae been busy working with the PDP-10 Incompatible Timesharing System:
There's now a very brief user manual:
I've had two people inquiring about using the cross compiler within a week. I guess it's about time I made a proper user interface, and start writing a manual.
Almost done testing on hardware. These devices can display a blinking LED:
I haven't been able to program my SiLabs 8051 using a ToolStick board. If someone can suggest another 8051 which is easy to use, I'm all ears.
Added support for Cortex-M devices using the Thumb instruction set.
The compiler is tested on simulators for all targets, but I'd like to be able to test on real hardware. This is the status so far:
I'd appreciate advice on which hardware to use for testing. It should be easy to program, and there should be a LED or something to indicate a succesful test.
Done with 8051, almost done with PDP-8.
Started with 8051.
Added 6502, more for fun than actual utility.
Midrange PIC is done. STM8 is next.
