HForth for Macintosh - Original Documentation
These are PDF versions of the original chapters from the HForth Manual for Macintosh, version 4.21 from 1993. The only changes are that I removed some phone numbers and PO box numbers.
HForth was a native code 32-bit Forth compiler written specifically for HMSL.
