Systems do not need to be very large to provide a full user interface. For instance WADUZITDO is a full system in 1/4K bytes while Forth fits in half-a-dozen kilobytes. A programming system provides a framework for user programming. It needs a text editor, a text processor, and an optional assembler for internal code.

Advantages--Small systems are easy to move, inexpensive to produce, and simple to use. (cbb 5/80)
