|JDForth - the first compiler(?) that takes an input source file and generates a Spin object!||For more information about Parallax's amazing Propeller chip, go and visit the Parallax Web Site.|
| Input Files: Forth source files + PASM kernel.|
| Output File: A Spin object that requires only a single cog.|
| Easy interface allows Spin access to Forth words.|
| The resultant object may be instantiated multiple times for multiple Forth systems.|
| Unused forth and kernel words are optimised out for a minimal memory footprint.|
| Editor has syntax highlighting for forth (*.jd4) as well as kernel (*.pasm) files.|
| Forth files allow compile time (CORE:) or run time (PASM:) inclusion of PASM words.|
| The assembly in PASM: and CORE: definitions is very close to the Parallax standard.|
| JDForth has integrated help, and comes with a generous number of libraries and examples.|
The final product will be produced in two variations: Light and Professional.
All Professional version features are now implemented.
The anticipated release date for the Light version is mid-November 2008.
