It is I, the king of /g/. I am here to bring you your first forth thread and to bless 16chan.

I demand as your king that the maki posts cease. The true queen of /g/ is lain from serial experiments lain.
Would anyone like to discuss forth with me?

imagine having only one good video about explaining how having a hammer that does two good things btfos the whole unix philosophy to some extent.
If there's something /g/ doesn't need is a male attention whore.

I am a unix demi-god. I have studied the unix way more than you realize.

If you truly understood my video about hammers then you'd realize why forth is "the ultimate unix way".
I sent this to Rob landley:

Thesis: Since filesize and memory footprint are the most precious
commodity, toybox needs forth.

Premises.

Toybox apps must be:
A. Fast:
Forth is significantly faster than sh + awk.
B. Small:
Forth < 1 kB
C. Memory Safe:
Either:
Require root to run forth in memory unprotected mode,
OR
(As a last resort) I'll add memory safety.
C. Useful:
Time non-critical programs like date can be written in forth.
Forth programs may be smaller than their c counteparts.
Any program made smaller by forth offer a savings to toybox.
If the savings exceed 1 kB forth pays for itself.

Therefore, if the sum of time non-critical apps in toybox exceeds 1 k,
I am right.

Sincerely,
John M. Beck
gentle reminder that I am the king of /g/ and you should program in forth
