Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Including files in durexForth (C64)
1 project | reddit.com/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.
Are there any things in math you wish you could rename?

For the interested, there is a modern open source C64 Forth called DurexForth.

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.

I must mention Factor, which is a modern concatenative, stack-based programming language. It turns out Forth was just the first concatenative language discovered/constructed.

The Lisp Curse

> Dr. Mark Tarver — twice-quoted, above — wrote a dialect of Lisp called Qi. It is less than ten thousand lines of macros running atop Clisp. It implements most of the unique features of Haskell and OCaml. In some respects, Qi surpasses them. For instance, Qi's type inferencing engine is Turing complete. In a world where teams of talented academics were needed to write Haskell, one man, Dr. Tarver wrote Qi all by his lonesome.
Check out https://github.com/factor/factor. Check out how much stuff they have implemented early on, just 2-4 guys tops. I found it really impressive.
I prefer languages without “puzzles”, like C. Clear, unambiguous syntax and semantics that trivially compile to machine code in a straightforward 1:1 mapping

I've always wanted to know how compilers work, I started writing one a few weeks back. Recently, I managed to rewrite the compiler in the new language itself!

Factor is another more modern take on concatenative languages that is fairly clearly somewhat lisp-influenced. https://factorcode.org/

One of such languages has been Factor. Let's see how it improves upon Forth.

These projects seem really cool! A few links and historical references that might be of interest:
> On the hardware side I want to use small and simple systems
If you'd like to build a fully understandable computer, you might be interested in concatenative languages like Forth, Factor, and colorForth. These use a much simpler and more understandable, typically stack-based computational model that run on microcontrollers like STM32. You can create more complex words by composing together simple assembly-language-like atoms and building higher and higher layers of abstraction.

> On the software side I have a simple GUI and macro language that is easy to learn and much much simpler and more elegant than current conventional UIs.
A good starting point or source of inspiration might be the Smalltalk and Lisp Machines from the past.
