This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
pForth is an interpreter for the ANS Forth language. It implements the Core, Core Extensions, File-Access, Floating-Point, Locals, Programming-Tools, and Strings word sets.
Any files specified on the command line will be processed as if typed. This is useful for scripting.
There are some other pForth docs in /usr/doc/pforth, and a web page at http://www.softsynth.com/pforth/.
Information on Forth in general is available from the Forth Interest Group web site at http://www.forth.org/.
