Slim pickens here I'm afraid, Tony. I got interested in it, stumbling
over a forth that ran on the coco back in the latter 80's. And I bought
a copy of Brodies "Starting Forth" back in the day but very few of the
lessons in the book would actually run on that crippled forth, so it
wasn't much of a teacher for me.
But, I'm a packrat and I don't believe I've thrown that away, but its
been since I was cleaning out my office as I was retiring in the middle
of 2002 since I last recall seeing it. No clue what became of the
disks, although there may be a copy of it on the pair of old mfm hard
drives I used on my office coco3.
And to find it, likely several days of excavation in my midden heap in
I've marked this message so it will be a bit easier to find should I come
across the book, or manage to find space to set my old office coco3 up
and see whats on its drives. IIRC I'll have to build or hack up a pc
psu to run the drives before I can make that run again.
Cheers, Gene Heskett
