    1 project | /r/Forth | 19 May 2022
    Just the durexForth manual from github. It's possible I missed something searching through it, but the example programs they have in the repo do have examples of word definitions starting on the first line of the file. Additionally, simply adding a comment to my own code didn't make a difference.

  • C64 Dungeoncrawler - Mockup

    I know you said you wrote this in Kick Assembler, but I really feel like I should plug 64tass a fantastic cross-assembler. I've used it for my own reverse engineering projects. You might also want to look into DurexForth not because I think you should write this in Forth instead of ASM, but because it might help you to think about how to write things like a quest interpreter.
