This way you get to the file "FORTH500" 3 minutes faster and you need 26K less space in the RAM drive!

Wow! That's almost 3x faster than the 18 minutes with the conversion program in Basic Smile

I'm almost finished with the next Forth500 update (I had to take a break for travel.) The floating point implementation works, except that I have some trouble with one system call to convert decimal values stored in strings to the internal BCD 20 digit float format. These "function driver" system calls are very lightly documented. I spent more time debugging the function driver calls by comparing memory dumps than actually writing assembly code.
