effective way to edit or save new words. After some searching, the files

To load the screen files onto the badge, follow the directions at:
Connect a USB to serial converter to the badge pins: C13 to TX, C14 to RX. Connect ground but not power.

xmdm r D:FILENAME.EXT
where FILENAME.EXT is the name of the file you are transferring. From the PC, start the transfer.
Once the files are there, enter

Manual: fig-Forth step by step (1990) Translated from Hungarian via Google, and with a few notes and corrections.
P! and P@ words do port IO via the OUT and IMP instructions. Search the .ASM
file for ";P@" to find the code. There is also a note: "The port I/O words
P@ & P! have been made ROMable by use of Z80 instructions." However,
the Z80 Emulator on the badge does NOT support IO to the onboard devices
other than the keyboard / screen, serial console, and drives. A feature request
