dc.description.abstractWoods Hole FORTH, called WFORTH, is a real time language for the RCA 1806 microprocessor. It follows the fig-FORTH standard, and is used by Alvin for data acquisition and display tasks, plus playback and processing tasks at sea and ashore. WFORTH is optimized for simple networking with RS-232 uarts. Programs can be installed in Eprom for use in unattended systems and can be configured to run a specific task when power is applied. The error handling can be customized to permit continued operation when errors are encountered. Extensive utilities and development tools are included such as full screen editor; the fig line editor; a single pass assembler; floating point support; disk file access; communication utilities for uploading or downloading files or blocks of memory; and documentation utilities. The complete sources and a glossary for WFORTH are included in this publication. Versions are supplied which include compiled development, floating point, and assembler utilities.en_US
