!! Abstract

Many programmers have found the development and testing of
assembly language subroutines easier within a Forth environment than
using more conventional tools. Subroutines created this way can then
be transformed to a form compatible with commercial assemblers,
and linked to calling programs in mainstream languages. This article
illustrates how to do this with three example subroutines of increasing
complexity, using a popular public domain Forth running under MS
Windows. The third example shows how to create tools not available
with conventional assemblers.
