Ficl - Forth command line interpreter

Postby Gavinmc42 » Mon Apr 08, 2019 4:24 am

I have been looking at adding a shell script language to my OS.
Mainly because I suspect for my simple single user apps that maybe all I need.

Bash, Ash, Korn etc are all old , why not something that runs a bit faster.
Did a google and found Ficl.
http://ficl.sourceforge.net/index.html

It has built in script debugging, whew ;)
That's one thing I always wanted with shells, single stepping.

Just one problem, it's Forth, I've never really mastered Forth.
Any other options for a shell language?
Lua and PascalScript and?

Looking at Basic ;)

Probably should learn about Basic interpreters as that is a basic place to start.
And since it was one of the first programming languages I learned, it will probably be the last one I forget ;)

Really need those pills now, should have read the old posts from 2 years ago :o

Will try PascalScript first, then maybe write a Basic interpreter in PascalScript?
