Forth for handheld machines?

Forth for handheld machines?

Forth for handheld machines?


Does anybody know about any FORTH ports for "VERIFONE" or "INGENICO" P.O.S. machines?

Best regards,
Federico Kereki

PS. I learned structured programming with Forth on an Apple, after keying in a bought photocopied assembly listing, which I found about in a FORTH-themed BYTE magazine ad!

RE: Forth for handheld machines?

Sorry Federico, no answer for you, but thought I could add to the question - looking for a Forth for the Sharp Zaurus - Linux/Strongarm PDA...


RE: Forth for handheld machines?

Hi Guys
Sorry I can't help either but it's good to see someone else looks here Cheers

RE: Forth for handheld machines?

Forth, Inc. worked with Verifone and Ingenico Smart Card readers a few years ago, so they probably still have a SwiftX version for them.  For Linux, I'd recommend one of the C based forths (GForth, PFE or pForth), but you will need to configure them yourself.
