  • 1. Forth word REFILL
    I was looking at a Forth listing and came across the word REFILL. Now coming for the Jupiter Ace acrchive site we usr AceForth and there is no REFILL word. REFILL is not defined in the listing so I guess it must be from an ANSI form of Forth (MMS-Forth ?) My Question is what its its task or function?

Cairo (the 2D graphics library) for example does Unicode very well. Of course you do not need to use this (well, as everything this has a lot of bugs). But, hey, if "Swift" does not help, help yourself. -Helmar
  • 3. 64 by 32 bit division
    Hi all, I've read a lot of thread before but I've not seen an answer to my question. Is there an unsigned 64 by 32 (or 48) bit division? I've seen a lot of routines for multiply a 48bit with a 16 bit number ( UTM* ) or 32bit * 32 bit ( UDDM* ) with a 64 bits result but never a division. Any suggestion on what I'm trying to do? Thanks in advance -- Ciao da Stefano "Non c'cattivo picattivo di quando un buono diventa cattivo!" Bud Spencer

"Although" sounds as if there would be a conflict, but there isn't.

In C it is.  However, the proposal does not specify octal notation for
characters, so in Forth it would not be.  We still might want to
support \0 without supporting octal notation, for the reasons given

Not really.  In particular, it has not lead to such consequences in C,
it conflicts with octal notation in C, and we (and C) already have
\x<h><h> for hex.

In that case I suggest adding a reference to

In that case we would change it in
