There's a quotation attributed to Burke: "All that is required for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."


Comments about life, colorForth and GreenArrays

You're welcome to email me your comments. I like to hear from people, and appreciate your suggestions. But there are several problems:

Eval Blog

My experience programming GreenArrays' Evaluation Board.


A dialect of Forth that uses color to replace punctuation. Native Pentium and Windows versions. Produces extremely compact programs. Instant compile from pre-parsed source.

Latest changes are compressed source: colorForth, OKAD and GA4 in 290K (25%). Also blue words that are executed at edit time, for formatting text.


A suite of VLSI design tools for layout and simulation. Compact description of gates, cells and chip. Resulting GDS II file ready for fabrication.

S40 Multicomputer Chip

Spectacular chip! 40 microcomputers, each with 128 words of 18-bit memory. Each capable of 700 Mips.

GreenArrays, Inc

I'm pleased to announce the formation of this company. We plan to develop and exploit the concept of multi-computer chips. That gives me another point of contact: chuck@greenarraychips.com.
