I should answer as I also didn't know Forth until this morning.  I had
read a bit about it here and there, though. It looks like a very
simple language according to what I read so far, which is some
tutorial info linked from http://www.forth.org and the gforth
tutorial. Feels like a mix of assembler, old calculators and Lisp
without parens.  Simple, clear and consise, like Go.

With mole, it is a language that can be embeded into pd patches. It
even is a kind of compiler embeded in Pd.
