Discover FORTH Announced By Osborne/McGraw-Hill

Osborne/McGraw-Hill has released a new book by Thorn Hogan entitled Discover FORTH: Learning and Programming the FORTH Language.

This introduction to FORTH, the computer language of building blocks, is written in a friendly, informal style. Beginners will find information on this multi-faceted language and instructions to guide their programming skills up to an intermediate level. More experienced programmers can use Hogan's book as a reference tool.

In the text, Hogan describes FORTH syntax, specifically applicable to both FORTH-79 and FIG-FORTH. Notes are included on logical extensions and alternatives to the current standard FORTH syntax.

Discover FORTH provides a history of the language and a synthesis of material from programming manuals, independent programmers, and publications of the FORTH Interest Group.
