Contents of the READ.ME file

By following the following instructions you will be able to produce a
"compiled" ZEN Forth application.

The following utilities must be accessible within the PATH
AWK to do the EXE to COM translation
ZEN and its SRC files in the current directory

Unpack the ZEN2APP archive into your ZEN directory.
Execute the following commands:

You have now produced a "compiled" ZEN Forth application.


Labels unreferanced in TBL.INC ( and its associate data) may be masked out.

Data following the last referanced data in VAR.INC may be masked out.
(I find execution problems if I mask out ALL "unreferanced" data in VAR.INC)

You are responsible for determining the parameter and return stack
requirements. (set in APP.ASM)

Also, If you dynamically add to the VAR or TBL data, you must also equate
the additional space required.

Redefinition is not supported.

I will call back to the EAST COAST FORTH board from time to time
to see if there are any questions or suggestions.
Otherwise, I can be reached via the following FAX number: 612 292 1493

Thank you, again, Mr. Tracy.

Mark A. Washburn

BTW: PRELINK.COM is also an example of a "compiled" ZEN Forth application.

03-17-90 fixed PRELINK.COM, needed dictionary space.
fixed MAPP.BAT, renamed AWK program.
