The size of the FLASH memory must be 24 KiloBytes at least (8192 instructions).
Some internal registers of the processors are reserved for the FORTH kernel and used as following:
- W0 is the top of the data stack,
- W14 contains the pointer to the second word of the data stack,
- W15 contains the return stack pointer.
If other registers are used, there are first saved in the return stack then reloaded after use.
Dialogue with the card makes
by using a VT100 terminal window of the host computer host.
The FORTH kernel installation needs the use of a programming tool. Software
packages can be then added by simple text file downloading via a RS232 terminal.
