Other FORTHs for the P1 or P2 out there ?

Has anyone seen or know of any FORTH - other than Tachyon or TAQOZ - that runs on the P1 or P2 ?

Not that I need one as I believe a hardware specific forth is more suitable for an embedded development but there are users who may wish to run more "standard" version of forth especially on the P2.

    There was PropForth but it was really slow.

    I believe Dave Hein created a Forth, but I do not remember the name to search for.

    Dave Hein started "FAST - A Forth interpreter"
    There's another called "PropForth"

  • I wrote pfth, which is an ANSI compliant Forth for the P1. It was faster than PropForth, but not as fast as Tachyon. I started working on FAST, which would have been a faster version of pfth, but I never completed it.
