DeltaForth File Builder is a GUI for the free DeltaForth .NET command line compiler, which is a particular implementation of the Forth programming language for .NET technology.
The DeltaForth compiler is produced by Valer Bolcan and can be downloaded from http://www.dataman.ro/dforth.
DeltaForth File Builder is a very simple GUI to create Forth source files with syntax highlighting and rapidly compile to exe or dll. It’s entirely written in Visual Basic 2005. It was created by some people who are Team Members of the Italian .NET community called Visual Basic Tips & Tricks (http://www.visual-basic.it):
• Alessandro Del Sole (Project coordinator and programmer in chief);
• Diego Cattaruzza (Project programmer and tester);
• Sergio Pappalardo (Project tester and creator of the CyberInstaller Suite which is featured for the deployment)

DeltaForth File Builder is an open-source project, which comes with full source code. It makes use of the ICSharpCode.TextEditor control by the ICSharpCode team. This control is released under the Gnu LGPL license, therefore DeltaForth File Builder is released under the Gnu GPL license (which is LGPL-compliant). Full source code for ICSharpCode.TextEditor is provided with the Builder.
DeltaForth File Builder’s source code implements a particular class library called DeltaForthFileBuilder.CompilerServices which provides managed access to the DeltaForth compiler. This class library is accompanied by a compiled help file which lets you learn how to use it in your own applications.
