RE: FORTH for the SHARP PC-E500 (S)
Thank you very much Helix, your program BINTOPCE.EXE works wonderfully in the DOSBox.

bintopce forth500.bin
File forth500 has been created.

uuencode forth500
UUencoding file forth500

The file FORTH500.UUE created in this way has a size of 26038 bytes. It is therefore slightly smaller than the file created on the PC-E500 with UUENCODE.MMM, which is because UUENCODE.MMM adds a character as a checksum at the end of each line. This is what the DOS program does when you call it with the -l parameter:
uuencode -l forth500
With uuencode -? it shows the list of all parameters. UUDECODE.MMM does not matter whether with or without a checksum , it always works:
after 6 minutes 48 seconds for the version without checksums per line
CALL &B0000
** Welcome to Forth! 45556 bytes free **

Now I'm really looking forward to the new version with its many extensions that robve is currently working on. Hopefully he cracks the secret of the last system call. I love Forth500, it is great for learning Forth and trying out examples from books or the internet. To do this, I put the PC-E500 on a stand bought for the HP-71B and glued HP-41/71 rubber feet under the Sharp computer at the appropriate places.
