Charles H. Moore

Charles H. Moore (born 1938) is an American computer engineer and programmer. He is the creator of the Forth computer language.


  • I like the observation that Forth is an amplifier: a good programmer can write a great program; a bad programmer a terrible one. I feel no need to cater to bad programmers.
  • It was a very academic environment. That became frustrating because there was no pressure for results. I thought commercial applications would be more rewarding. But since then I’ve met too many people who want to make a career out of a project instead of completing it. That’s life.
