seedForth - said to be real quick to port

at the end of the talk, the lecturer makes the claim that seedForth can be ported to a new CPU within half a day, with the first half spent on reading the guide as a non-Forth programmer.

only like 30 simple instructions to implement in vCPU Gigatron machine code and you're done! :)

https://github.com/uho/preForth has i386 Assembler to be replaced by vcpu machine code. Mr Hoffman says he has AMD64 arch target but that is not on github ready-made like i386

the goal is to run this interesting App : https://github.com/uho/preForth/blob/ma ... h/hi.forth
