ANS Forth System and a Forth-2012 System

Gforth has the following environmental restrictions:

In addition, Standard Forth systems are required to document certain implementation choices. This chapter tries to meet these requirements for the Forth-94 standard. For the Forth-2012 standard, we decided to produce the additional documentation only if there is demand. So if you are really missing this documentation, please let us know.

In many cases, the following documentation gives a way to ask the system for the information instead of providing the information directly, in particular, if the information depends on the processor, the operating system or the installation options chosen, or if they are likely to change during the maintenance of Gforth.
