As someone has already replied, disabling the beastie menu is simple,
and requires but a single line in /boot/loader.conf.
On the other hand, I'd recommend cheking out the Forth Interest Group
web page (http://www.forth.org/) if you want to search for reading material.
And, yes, it's a love/hate kind of thing. :-) I think someone ported a
userland version of Forth as lang/ficl.
