That's correct.

Apple's references, including a small introduction to the Forth language:
http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn/tn1061.html
http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn/tn1062.html

Other links:
http://www.openfirmware.org/
http://www.forthfreak.net/wiki/index.cgi?OpenFirmware

If you plan on programming something nice tell us about it :)
And oh yeah, RPN (Reverse Polish Notation) is fun.

Oh, and here's a transcript (retyped?) of Leo Brodie's "Starting Forth", which apparently is the classic book on learning Forth. Don't know if you already know Forth or not...

Apparently a lot of information has gone up on the web about Forth since the last time I looked. Cool.
