3. Forth/Open Firmware

Chapter 3. Forth/Open Firmware

Verbum sat sapienti

At the beginning of this book, I said I would talk about hardware, not software. There are many good books already written on C programming, embedded firmware development in C, porting Linux, coding in Python, writing Java software, and so on. However, there is one software topic that is rare, and chances are you may not happen upon it or become exposed to it. And that is a pity, because for the hardware developer, this topic can be very important. It is the programming language, Forth. So, I will break with the general “stuff you can kick” theme of this book to give you an overview of this important language.
