 ANSI compliant Forth for Power Mac?

I'm looking for an ANSI compliant Forth for Power Macintosh computer?
Please give also your opinion about the quality of the product (what is
included, how well is the documentation ...)

Thanks!

Rainer

Hi Rainer,
   I know Creative Solutions has a product (PowerMacForth) which is ANS
compliant.  I do not use this product (I use their 68k product) but from
what I have read it appears to be a fast product which supports all of the
Mac toolbox.  If I take as an indication the documentation and support for
their 68k product, I would expect that it is also excellent for the PMac.
There is also a pd/sw (not sure which) package called MOPS which has
gotten good reviews and gets support online (PMacForth is through
Compuserve, GO FORTH) at comp.lang.forth.mac, and I believe there is a
link at Skip Carter's page for this program.

Let me know if you wish to have more info... (PMacForth~$200US I think,
icluding documentation).

Mops is Michael Hore's object oriented Forth for Macintosh and is indeed
Public Domain and Free.  It is not PPC native just yet; will be soon
however.  Mops does include a PPC assembler with which you can optimize
time-critcal code.  For ANSI compliance, simply load the file ANSI.

The Mops F.A.Q., manual, and Mops itself can be found on The Mops Page:

         <URL: http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~jayfar/mops.html>

and you'll find us Mopsters{*filter*} out in comp.lang.forth.mac

Cheers,
