Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN ADA COMPILER WHOSE OBJECT CODE IS BASED ON THE FORTH PROGRAMMING SYSTEM. THE PRINCIPAL ELEMENTS OF THE RUN-TIME SYSTEM WOULD INCLUDE THE USE OF THREADED CODE, A DUAL-STACK ARCHITECTURE, AND A TIGHTLY-COUPLED SET OF OPERATORS TO PERFORM BOTH SYSTEM AND APPLICATION FUNCTIONS. SUCH A COMPILER WOULD BE CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING EMBEDDED SYSTEMS WITH USEFUL CAPABILITY BY GENERATING SMALL, EFFICIENT EXECUTABLE IMAGES IN THE RANGE OF 16-64 KILOBYTES FOR THE COMPLETE SOFTWARE SYSTEM. MOREOVER, THE COMPILER WOULD BE EASILY ADAPTED TO GENERATE CODE FOR A NUMBER OF 8-16BIT MICROPROCESSORS.
