colorForth is the latest version of the Forth programming language by Forth's creator and inventor, Charles Moore (chipchuck): extremely minimal, tiny, and fast, with simplified syntax based on color (text traits can be changed to others for the color-blind) to omit some words and typing. Has a custom keyboard configurer and editor to save even more keystrokes. Forms the base of a potent, free VLSI design tool. The official way to spell and capitalize this language, according to its creator's website, is as one word: "colorForth", not the common variants "ColorForth" or "Color Forth".
In 1978, shortly after Chuck Moore discovered the Forth language, volunteers started to make public domain implementations available for all popular micro computers. This is the fig-Forth series of compilers. Most modern public domain Forths are descendants of these Forths.
