-- How to build pForth ------------------------------------

See pForth reference manual at:

http://www.softsynth.com/pforth/pf_ref.php

-- How to run pForth ------------------------------------

Once you have compiled and built the dictionary, just enter:
pforth

To compile source code files use: INCLUDE filename

To create a custom dictionary enter in pForth:
c" newfilename.dic" SAVE-FORTH
The name must end in ".dic".

To run PForth with the new dictionary enter in the shell:
pforth -dnewfilename.dic

To run PForth and automatically include a forth file:
pforth myprogram.fth

-- How to Test PForth ------------------------------------

You can test the Forth without loading a dictionary
which might be necessary if the dictionary can't be built.

Enter: pforth -i
In pForth, enter: 3 4 + .
In pForth, enter: loadsys
In pForth, enter: 10 0 do i . loop

PForth comes with a small test suite. To test the Core words,
you can use the coretest developed by John Hayes.

Enter: pforth
Enter: include tester.fth
Enter: include coretest.fth

To run the other tests, enter:

pforth t_corex.fth
pforth t_strings.fth
pforth t_locals.fth
pforth t_alloc.fth

They will report the number of tests that pass or fail.
