@maleza im very close to falling aslwep so ill attempt this over the next few days. i cant think of a good way to do sorts, but xilters should be easy
@neauoire For some reason I think that I can tell when some code is or isn't idiomatic forth but there seems to be some kind of magic clarity that I can't reproduce myself right now. So I whant to see more in the hope of developing that thing :)
@maleza https://stackoverflow.com/questions/39025570/problems-with-quicksort-in-forth-for-big-sorted-arrays has a nice looking quicksort.
Really considering a compilation of examples. It's hard to find the idiomatic non gforth path.
@maleza I am super new to the scene and not a programmer. But from what I have read about the philosophy of forth--some forth programmers wouldn't have any confidence in the idea of "common cs problems"
@potato nice catch. "common cs problems" might not be the best way of describe it. In fact Moore recomends the elimination of some like filesystems. What I was trying to refer to is some stuff common to data problems: sort, filter, split, reduce, etc. Those seem unavoidable beyond programming language/philosofy choice.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
