I kept TED small, so loading does not take too much time and the application itself does not require much memory to run. But it pushes memory limits on an unexpanded E500.

I've noticed them Wink

Also included are ESR-L and E500 technical manuals. I've translated the Japanese XASM documentation to English for convenience and CPU resources Big Grin

This is something I will investigate later. I still have to finish learning Forth, especially all the features of Forth500, and I have a lot to explore with all your examples.

The only CPU I know is the SC61860, because I learned the machine language of my Sharp PC-1401. But I've forgotten everything since that time!
Do you know if there is a common CPU that is comparable to the ESR-L, if my question makes sense?
