Misty Beach Forth can be run as a Java application as well as an applet.
To run Misty Beach Forth as an application:
Misty Beach Forth can be used without charge for non-commercial uses. If you
want to use it commercially, please e-mail Mark.
- You will need access to a Java runtime environment that is not
embedded in a browser. Sun Microsystems
makes one available for Solaris, Linux and Win32 platforms. See the
download page for more details.
Internet Explorer from Microsoft also comes with a Java 1.1 application
environment that can run Misty Beach Forth. If you do not have this
(recent versions of IE ship without Java by default), you can download
it from here. I recommend
downloading the Sun implemenation of Java if you don't have any Java on
your Windows machine.
Apple provides a Java implementation for the Macintosh here.
- Download the file download.zip somewhere onto your
- download.zip contains two files, one JAR file and one HTML file. Extract
them to a directory. You can use the HTML file to launch a web page with
the applet version of Misty Beach Forth. This can save the download time
if you have a slow Internet connection. You can also run the JAR file
as a standalone Java application.
- To run Misty Beach Forth as a standalone application:
Both of the above work on Windows NT and Windows 95. I expect
that something similar works for Unix and Macintosh machines.
- If you have installed JDK 1.3 or later, you can simply double-click
on the Jar file. It is an "Executable JAR" and should launch
- If you are using JDK 1.2 or JDK 1.1 on Windows you will need to launch from
a command line. Type this:
java -classpath %classpath%;mbforth.jar com.mistybeach.forth.Forth
or, if you are using the Java environment from Microsoft, launch like this:
jview /cp mbforth.jar com.mistybeach.forth.Forth
