You know you're a Forth (or Factor) geek when...

...you type .s in bash to get a file listing. I do this all the time, and a few other people on IRC mentioned the same thing. It's funny.

So is there not a Forth/Factor shell yet, then?

No, there isn't. It would be a nice thing to have, especially if it integrated with the UI to provide live presentations of directories, etc. So many projects, so little time :) Maybe somebody else will implement this.

What?

In forth, .s is a non-destructive stack print. I'll habitually type it, or just an '.' to see if I've left something undone.

You can display screens with 'block'. But what's this 'file' you speak of?
