Seriously, what if we had a pocket mobile running Forth


what if there was a Forth

I have a couple of old Palms IIIs somewhere, what can I do with them.....??

500K RAM was enough to hold an entire novel, as I remember.

I bought and read Stephen King's last three Dark Tower novels on Palm when Palm Digital Media was still Peanut Press

all gone now like cry stuff in wet sky stuff

@natecull I used to be glued to TI graphing calculators years ago. once one memorized the menu shortcuts, the tokenized BASIC could be written fairly quickly given the crippled keyboard layout.

I wonder what an IDE designed for a touchscreen would look like. MIT Scratch?


@ddipaola @natecull

I'm using two sessions and Pico

(yes, I'm one of THOSE people, please don't start telling me about vi or emacs, I know them and I despise them)

@sydneyfalk @ddipaola

I am Pico all the way.

Tried three times to learn Emacs. Couldn't get past the 'we are not compliant with the standard Windows/Mac/Linux copy-paste keystrokes standardised back in the 1980s and we don't care to be, we're proudly stuck in the 1970s before cursor keys were invented and are not moving forward'.

I don't need attitude from my dev tools. I need stuff that invisibly respects the platform defaults, thanks.
