The net effect of these differences is usually to facilitate keeping the assembler resident at all times, without adverse impact even on relatively limited platforms, leading in turn to significantly simplified development procedures. ). Notation specifying these has been standardized across all Forths, to make it easier for programmers working with several different CPUs. Naturally, this means the notation differs from the manufacturer ’s notation; however, all modes supported by the processor are implemented in the Forth assembler.
