Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: The new Third Editon of Forth Programmer's Handbook (ISBN 1419675494) is now available on

Forth Programmer's Handbook provides a reference source for the most common features of the integrated software development systems based on the Forth programming language. It assumes at least an elementary knowledge of the Forth language, consistent with having studied Starting Forth and attended a Forth programming course, or the equivalent. If you are new to Forth, we encourage you to begin by reading Starting Forth carefully and working the problems at the end of each chapter.

This book is primarily intended to describe how a programmer can use Forth to solve problems. This is a rather different goal from explaining how Forth works, but it is a practical necessity for the new user of a Forth system. This manual is also organized to serve experienced programmers who need to check some point quickly.
