Forth Help!!

I have just got Forth v2 for my Atmos, but I am having some problems. I was hoping someone out there might have experience with this and may be able to help. After I load the editor into screens 1 to 7 using the command 1 7 CLOAD I can list the editor in all 7 screens, but when I try to comile it wi...

The Quill

Not sure where to post this, and I can't find a market place forum here, so I figure this would be my best bet.

I am after an original copy of The Quill for the Oric Atmos. I am willing to pay (providing it's a reasonable price).

Does anyone have a copy they would be willing to sell?

Re: Tape drive for PC !

Don't know if it would work for recording Oric tapes: http://www.firebox.com/product/1700?itc=48&src_t=nwt&src_id=137 But looks cool :) (Too bad it's not black and red :) ) If only I had a PC, not an iMac :( Seriously though, why not just hook up your ape deck to the line in or mic socket on your s...

Oric Toolkit

Bit of a dumb question this, but does anyone know what the Toolkit by Superior Software is used for? Or how to use it? I just won a bunch of software off ebay and this was included, with no instructions. When I load it, I am just returned to the BASIC prompt after loading. I'm assuming it is a Basic...

One has to wonder though how much memory is left for anything apart from some very small projects (Around 7K available). This is one of the things I want to look at. I currently use White Lightning on the Spectrum and that is Forth based, and yet I know some substantial projects have been developed...

Oric Forth

I am thinking of using Forth to code some games on a couple of other 8-bit platforms. I just wanted to know, is Oric Forth derived from fig-Forth and is it suitable for creating games?

Hi, I'm new on this forum and am therefore trawling my way through some of the older posts. I see from this thread that there is (or was) possibly a problem keeping an Oric IRC channel open for chat sessions. I have a chat area on my site and have added an Oric room should anyone want to use it. The...

Hi from a new member

Just saying Hi to everyone. I had an Oric back in the eighties, which I sold a few years later. I since managed to get hold of another Atmos, I believe it was via Jim Groom, in the nineties, which I still have. I recently pulled it out of storage and am re-aquainting myself with it. I also use a Spe...
