wina : an MS-WIndows NAtive Forth

You can download here release 5.2 of a 32-bit ISO console Forth for MS-Windows called wina. This is one of the Forth's that can be generated by the ciforth generic system at github: ciforth, computer intelligence Forth. The archive has a binary download, ready to run, with documentation ready to be viewed or printed.
It is dll-based (as opposed to dpmi-based) with long filenames and access to DLL libraries. You can make executables that uses DLL's that are opened on a (different) target system. hence in principle to all facilities of MS-Windows. The built-in commands however only use kernel32.dll.
A stable beta release for MS-Windows (2017 oct) is available in 64-bit and 32-bit . An important addition is a floating point package. The github archive for ciforth contains all corresponding source material, and a wiki.
The latest snapshot release for MS-Windows (2020 oct) is available here in 64-bit.
NOTE: The 2017 64 bit archive did not properly compile to stand alone executables, but this snapshot release does.

The last release 4 version is still available, as there still may be some programs on this website that require this version. . Version 4.0.7 will be the last release for DPMI : DOS protected mode interface. Simply unzip this file in a separate directory and start preferably from the DOS prompt. At last this is an official release and you can file bug reports against it. This is a dead link now, because Simtel shut down. A very old snapshot (beta) version is also available.
Do .SIGNON once you are in Forth, to find out what version you have.
