GNU Forth

https://www.gnu.org/software/gforth/
Portable implementation of ANS Forth language.

Gforth is a fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth language. It works nicely with Emacs, offers some nice features such as input completion and history and a powerful locals facility, and a manual. Gforth employs traditional implementation techniques: its inner interpreter is indirect or direct threaded. Gforth runs under UNIX, Win95, OS/2, and DOS. It should not be hard to port to other systems supported by gcc.
