Summary: k:Forth
 kForth is an implementation of the Forth programming language and environment
 providing a significant *subset* of the ANS specification for the Forth model.
 It also provides some extensions and "non-standard" features, among them:
 * kForth uses a dynamically allocated dictionary rather than a fixed size
   monolithic dictionary.
 * Floating point extensions are implemented to allow scientific compuation.
 * Low level file access words are implemented. These include OPEN, CLOSE,
   LSEEK, READ, WRITE, and IOCTL - permitting direct access to device drivers.
 * kForth performs type checking for operations involving memory addresses.
   This is a non-standard feature which is intended to help prevent memory
   access violations (segmentation fault). Although the type checking feature
   lowers execution efficiency, kForth is reasonably fast for many applications

 In addition to being as a stand-alone computing environment, the kForth
 program was also written so that it may be easily embedded into another
 program. Advanced programmers, typically programming in the C and C++
 languages, can use the kForth source code to make their programs user
